What I've done for Zellerbach Hall in a pinch is park at a BART station along the line and just take BART. It's a little bit of a walk but the hill has a gentle slope.<P>At the Orange County Performing Arts Center, avoid the parking structure attached to the theater. Its expensive and the lines to get out have been long as I recall. There is another structure just to the west that is catty corner from South Coast Repertory and the line to leave is much shorter. I think its cheaper, too, like $5.<P>However, I usually just park at the South Coast Plaza, get a coffee (the coffee at the OCPAC only gets a B), and walk.<P>When I was by the Kennedy Center in February, they had messed up the auto access. They're doing a lot of construction and I would check before driving there. However, they send parking information with your tickets. They have red shuttle buses to the Foggy Bottom METRO station, which are medium convenient, but I use because I refuse to drive in Washington, D.C. Not because of the mean drivers but because the geography is Byzantine in that peculiarly European way.<P>I seem to recall that at the San Jose Performing Arts Center, the trick was to park in the open air lot about 2 blocks to the south of the theater rather than the structure that is right there, but I haven't seen a show there in a few years.

That's correct, Jeff. In San Jose, do NOT park at the garage right next (actually behind) the Performing Arts Center -- it'll cost you an arm and a leg and more. Instead, use the open lot or the Convention Center garage nearby.

I brought this thread up again because in the PNB thread in the Ballet Forum we are discussing the ballet company coming to the Hollywood Bowl.

Seeing dance outside can be a wonderful experience. I went to a concert by Johnny Mathis (swoon) at the Greek theater in the LA area. I enjoyed being there very much. The ampitheater is not so large that the dancers wouldn't be visible, and the sight lines seemed to be good. Also a beautiful backdrop of hills and sunset. There is stack parking but it didn't take very long for it to clear out.

Would that be a good venue for dance?

No. If I remember correctly, the stage is hard.

But a sprung floor could always be put over the hard floor if it could be paid for.

I remember reading in Allegra Kent's autobiography that when NYCB visited LA, they'd perform at the Greek Theater.
