Fodor's Review

This 3,750-seat outdoor theater in the middle of Washington's historic Rock Creek Park used to host a variety of pop, jazz, gospel, and rhythm-and-blues artists such as Chick Corea and Nancy Wilson throughout the summer. Government spending cuts mean the schedule is currently limited to weekends in August but the joy is still free and the venue magnificent.
