Took the Expo Line from Culver City - transfered at 7th and Fig to the red line and voila - there in no time with no parking expenses. A short walk across Grand Park with its food trucks and music and had a wonderful evening at the ballet!

Took my mother to the Saturday matinee performance and we both enjoyed it immensely. She is 97 and the performance was so entrancing (dancing, sets, costumes) that she stayed for the entire performance, which was over 2 1/2 hours.
