The weather was doesn't matter - it's inside. I wore Since I know the Lifeline, I came in layers... It's always colder in there than quite comfortable. But they do provide blankets on each chair ;-).

Right at CTA Morse stop (red Line) - parking in neighborhood is bad - BUT: Lifeline has its own FREE parking space a few blocks away, with (also free) shuttle service to and fro.

They offer nice little (sweet only) snacks in intermission. But If you want to dine, come early and go to the Heartland Cafe. That's one of Chicagolands bestest cool food places! ;-) Just a block north of the Lifeline, same street.

Use the free parking lot about six blocks from the theater. A shuttle van will take you to the theater's front door. Otherwise, try your luck on street parking near the theater. Also, the theater is at the Morse stop on the red line if you prefer to take the "L."

The weather was warm. I wore polo shirt and jeans, but it is a bit chilly in the theater; they provide blankets (no kidding)..

Lifeline has a free shuttle from parking spaces quite a bit away. They will be happy to provide directions. We went on a Sunday afternoon and the parking on Morse was free. I don't know if that was an aberration, but it was a pleasant surprise to be able to park only a few feet away from the theater for free!

It was amazing how 9 or 10 men could believably fight the Civil War in a small space with relatively few props. The stagecraft was choreographed like a dance and was... continued

Once again, great job from this theater. The way they portrayed the death of the soldiers was wonderful. Took our folks and they plan on going back to see it again with some friends.
