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.

Very impressed with the creativity it took to stage such an "impossible" movement of film to stage. You forgot the horses were puppets. I am happy I saw the film first because I could fill in the gaps and assumptions in the staging. Loved the play!
