Fodor's Review

Though rebuilt several times, the National Theatre has operated in the same location since 1835. It now hosts touring Broadway shows, such as Hal Holbrook in Mark Twain Tonight, Blue Man Group, and West Side Story. In November 2013, the National presented If/Then, its first pre-Broadway Tryout in years. From September through April, look for free children's shows Saturday mornings and free Monday night shows that may include Asian dance, performance

art, and a cappella cabarets.
