BART takes you right to Addison Street or if you drive, there are parking lots nearby. I used a lot because my parking karma wasn't working well that night. But get there early enough so you don't have to rush to your seat.

There's a huge cold air vent above the last row on the right. Do not sit in Row K.

One of the best plays I've seen in recent years. Hershey Felder is extraordinarily talented. Don't miss it.
