Parking on the street is a bit dicey. We found a spot by circling around onto Clybourn. But if you drive, leave time to seek a spot unless you plan to use the parking lot - $13.

They have hearing assistance devices, which my wife used, but the actors aren't miked, so the devices work by amplifying all the sounds in the theatre, including when someone in the audience coughed. Better than nothing, I suppose, but I didn't use one and had very little trouble hearing. What I missed was due to accent, not inability to hear.

This play is perfectly cast. All the actors manage the loopy, dark humor of it without losing sight of the larger story.

Not the best play I've been to, by any stretch. I enjoyed a few small sections, my husband, however, did not. The ending was quite abrupt and in no way satisfying. I will say that the acting was very good!

Excellent story that made the people of the West make sense to me (I lived out there for the past decade), as well as made me think of the American experience in a way I never had before. Impeccable performances as well.
