Mike's Cafe Etc is a good pre-show dining spot - tasty food, nice atmosphere, quick service. Or pick up a burrito at Sancho's.

music,acting and dancing were top quality, and the voices were outstanding..I had trouble with the Caribbean dialect and the seats were not good-they were in the next to last row even tho' we are red velvet members and ordered the tickets weeks ago.
