The National Theater is located inside the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Park, one of the landmarks in Taipei. If you have time and the weather permits, after the program, I'd recommend to take a walk in the Memorial Park, where you can enjoy a slower-paced and a more relaxed side of Taipei that you don't find very easily elsewhere in the city.
Quick Note: The National Theater can be easily accessible by TRTS, Taipei's metro system. It is free to enter the Memorial Park, and the tickets to the theater range from $10 to $50 in average. Formal attire is usually not required. Copies of the programs can be found at most of the large bookstores in Taipei. They are also listed online.
