The whole thing is only an hour so park across the street and not in the parking structure, where you have to pay $10..

The weather was cool. I wore jeans and a nice top. It was very warm inside the theater, almost too hot in the balcony section..

Seats were last row balcony, but they were still great, not a bad seat in the house. Performance was overall pretty good. Don't expect Baryshnikov, but enjoyable nonetheless. Second half is better than the first, so don't leave at intermission!
