Saturday Matinee, lots of traffic; coming from los altos took me exactly 1 hour, but I drive like a demon. Was going to PARK @ hotel Donatello, read that fee was only $6 - but by 1:30 that lot was full, the one right next to it was $20 flat fee (!!) but I parked there because didn't want any hassle.

Wonderful Tom Stoppard, deeply thoughtful and stimulating. Engaging cast. You might want to try the free headsets if you're up on the balcony because the dialogue moves fast.
