Or, add your own...plenty of eating places located very close to the theater, reasonably priced & a little higher end if that's what you are looking for. Public parking was a little difficult, so might as well park in the parking structure on Maryland as the first 90 mins. are free. Total cost of just the performance was $1!!!!
