KENNEDY CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS VENUE INFORMATION

Built in 1971 to realize the late President Kennedy's ambitions to bring culture to the American public, the Center has seen over 300 productions across ballet, theater and concerts created and stage at the complex. December 2014 saw the start of an ambitious expansion project that would reopen access from the Center to the Potomac River, as well as easier access to lower Georgetown and provide more space for visitors and performers to engage with.

The Book of Mormon

Kennedy Center Opera House

Until August 16, 2015

With NINE Tony Awards - including Best Musical - a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, and top New York critic Ben Brantley himself calling it the "best new musical of the century", this is one show you won't want to miss when it comes to a stage near you. Yes, that's right - you no longer have to fly to Broadway to catch this worldwide phenomenon, the boys are bringing it to you!

Once

Eisenhower Theater

The creators of the acclaimed Black Watch, director John Tiffany and choreographer Steven Hoggett, join forces with playwright/screenwriter Enda Walsh to bring the hit independent film Once, winner of a 2007 Academy Award for the hit song "Falling Slowly", to the stage.

Kinky Boots

Kennedy Center Opera House

June 14-July 10, 2016

Kinky Boots is one of Broadway's most successful new musicals, snapping up six 2013 Tony Awards including Best Musical! The uplifting show tells the tale of a failing family-run shoe factory in England whose business trajectory is changed (and saved!) thanks to the influence of a stiletto-wearing drag queen named Lola.

The Bridges of Madison County

Eisenhower Theater

June 28-July 17, 2016

Duty and desire collide in this unashamedly romantic musical, based on the treasured novel by Robert James Waller. The story follows the romance between Francesca, an Italian-American housewife unsure of herself, stuck on a remote farm in Iowa, and photographer Robert, who becomes lost whilst shooting the county's bridges and stumbles into her home. And so begins a tantalizing tale of love, loss and acceptance that will melt your heart.

Phantom Of The Opera

Kennedy Center Opera House

July 13-August 20, 2016

Andrew Lloyd Webber's romantic musical is based on Gaston Leroux's gothic novel of life beneath the stage. A secretive opera composer stalks the halls of the Paris Opera House and becomes obsessed with young ingenue Christine, and will stop at nothing to have her. This longstanding Eighties rock opera has received a full-scale update for new audiences without compromising on the glory of the original production.
