Exit 27 Play
We were really frustrated that the venue information Goldstar website ( nor the ticket I printed out and had with us) made any mention of UH Downtown nor how hard it would be to find the theater. We live in Katy, TX (west of Houston) and have never been to that building downtown much less know Where the parking is. There was no visitor parking sign nor directions given for visitor parking on Main street (the address of the building). We found out when we finally got inside that the parking entrance is on Travis St. Who would have known from only the Goldstar information?
Praise God one of the wait staff in the Spaghetti Warehouse told us that we could park there and march up the hill-she at least knew of the address on your ticket but not the theater itself.
The directions and parking info are clearly marked on the website for landingtheatre.org. There is no mention of the connection to O'Kane theater and Landing Theater on the Gold Star purchase confirmation that we carried with us. The only email address or contact information I found on the whole site is email@example.com. I can't even contact an individual there. I'm praying that who answers firstname.lastname@example.org emails will pass all this information on to the marketing manager, artistic director and anyone else who needs to know.
The march up the hill from where we did park made us hot and sweaty in the July heat of Houston, TX and then those doors were locked. The story of the play was miserable, too, and we left at intermission.
This is my husband's version of our miserable experience:
> To whom it may concern.
> This last weekend, my wife and I had a miserable time finding the theater in which Exit 27 was presented.
> First, the ticket had no phone number, no directions indicating that the theater is within UH Downtown--of which there are several buildings, and there was no indication that parking was in the UH 1 Main Place building.....or even how to access the parking. We called our son to get a phone number to find the place, but there was no one there to answer. To complicate the situation, the venue was in the middle of the homeless district. We asked multiple individuals there where 1 Main Place is and we were sent in all directions. We finally had to park at the Spaghetti Warehouse bayou-level lot and trek uphill to the UH building where O'Kane theater is, and lucky for us, even though the door was locked, someone just happened from the inside to be there to let us in.
> So....let me suggest more information be printed on tickets to avoid the stresses of trying to find the theater.
