Lots of places nearby Segerstrom Center to eat, from pricey to moderate. We ate at Thasos, a moderately priced Greek restaurant, in the Bed, Bath and Beyond shopping center diagonal to Segerstrom Center. Pretty good food, and can leave your car there to save $10 parking fee. Also Japanese, Indian, Cuban or specialty Hamburger restaurants in the same center.

This was probably the worst play I've ever seen. Not so much the performances (although they were not great) but rather the story line. Very difficult to follow as the stage was very busy. Would have walked out had I not been with others. ...continued

Sung, Acted and Played very well!! Subject matter lacked depth and development. I never actually cared for ANY of the characters! Oh well, it's the typical 'angst of youth' display.
