Parking is on the side street just to the north of the theater. There is a sign on the gate which is part of the school on the corner.

the theater lot was completely full 45 minutes before the show started, but because I went on a Sunday I found free (unmetered) street parking nearby.

Quotes & Highlights

Read Goldstar member reviews from a previous run.
“… a performance with craft and wit …commanding, impish and tragic. Goodman tosses off the play’s many ribald jokes and one-liners with aplomb, and has a winking, wry rapport with the audience…” —LA Weekly
Goodman delivers “a wonderful understanding of this larger than life actor … riveting … hopefully this show will bring a spotlight to this marvelous performer.” —Stage Happenings
