Regarding the venue - It's a small theater, probably around 50 seats? The seats are low and a bit uncomfortable as they seem to be pretty worn. I had read a tip that it gets cold in there, so I took a shawl, which I used for part of it, but my friend was a bit hot, so go figure. There is one bathroom each for men and women. It's next door, but this is a building where the doors and the venue/offices are rightnexttoeachother, so it's not a big deal. You do have to climb stairs, though.Play Noir 2014 info • Sep 29 2014 star this tip starred

It's like an old-school Italian restaurant.Play Noir 2014 dining • Sep 29 2014 star this tip starred
