Just a note of caution concerning Parking Panda. I chose the parking garage at 220 E. 9th st. - LaSalle Parking. It looked like a good deal as the website states you can arrive at any time and stay until 11:59 p.m. with a price of $32. So I got there around 7:50 and was told by the parking attendant that there would be an additional charge of $9. I showed him the receipt that I printed out and he said I would still have to pay the additional fee - that he received lots of complaints about that and his boss was aware and that the website was incorrect about the fees. He said he was telling me about the additional $9 to give me an opportunity to find another parking option. But at 7:50 p.m.? Of course I was not going to attempt to find other parking in the area before the play started. I paid the $41 to get my car out. Later I contacted Parking Panda initiating an instant chat with Anne of Parking Panda and the $9 was credited back to my card.

Don't believe the "real" price for the Saturday 9:30 PM show - it is actually $49, not $80!

LOVED this play! Loved the set design, loved the costumes, loved the actors, loved the singing, LOVED THE MUSIC! I was thoroughly entertained about the unique way the story of Emelda Marcos was retold. Very interactive, which was fantastic. ...continued

Great show. Unique experience. Also, one of our party was unable to stand for the show and they were able to accommodate her with balcony seating.
