There is a Metro station nearby, but parking on prem is $9 and worth it. The only poorly designed aspect is the Handicap parking as there is only one bank of elevators at the far end of the structure away from the Ahmanson, neccessitating anyone wheelchair bound to wheel themselves or be pushed across the parking structure and then all the way back across again once they are on the main level. Very poor planning on someone's part, if there was to be only one set of elevators, they should have been placed in the middle.

Description

Elaine Stritch takes center stage with an evening of songs and stories from her legendary career. She dated Brando, covered Merman and performed Coward. From her start as an aspiring actress living in a New York City convent to her signature rendition of “The Ladies Who Lunch,” at long last, Elaine Stritch is “at liberty” to tell it and sing it like it is—and was—in the theater and her life.

Elaine Stritch at Liberty

opened at The Public Theater in New York to unanimous critical raves and audience acclaim. The production moved to the Neil Simon Theatre on Broadway, where it became an instant smash hit and went on to win the 2002 Tony Award for Special Theatrical Event.
