Fodor's Review

On Saturday and Sunday nights from June to September, this 3,750-seat outdoor theater in the middle of Washington's historic Rock Creek Park hosts pop, jazz, gospel, and rhythm-and-blues artists such as Chick Corea and Nancy Wilson. The National Symphony Orchestra also performs here, and for two weeks the Shakespeare Theatre presents a free play.
