Parked at Hollywood & Highland and got food at CPK so parking would be validated. Always works like a charm but this time, the Dolby Theater had a show that got out the same time as the concert, so the entire garage was emptying out at once. It took us at least an hour and a half to get out -- it was a nightmare! Definitely check the Dolby Theater schedule before parking there.

More on the experimental side; we did enjoy the production; too bad the captions on the video were not better presented -- too small for my old eyes & the white on light colors was hard; wonderful attempt at blending symphonic and jazz styles;...continued
