We went to the Saturday matinee and parked at the Donatello hotel. It was only $10 for 5 hours so you have plenty of time before or after for a bite to eat before or after. There's a half price happy hour at the hotel restaurant too

There's a small lot off Geary St., down an ally. $15 for Sunday. Not bad.

THE PLAY WAS VERY SHORT AND I FELT LIKE I DIDN'T LEARN ANYTHING FROM IT. IT SIMPLY SHOWS HOW WE DATE AND HOW WE GET ALONG WITH THOSE OF THE OPPOSITE GENDER. THE PLAY/THE CHARACTERS DIDN'T EVOKE ANY FEELINGS. THE ACTRESS WHO PLAYED DEBRA WAS TOO...continued

The show has not been updated since the 70's. Not a good time.

Description

Outrageously funny and relentlessly naughty, _Sexual Perversity in Chicago _was the spark that ignited David Mamet’s firecracker career. In this brash take on sex and love, twentysomethings look for companionship in a predatory world filled with grandstanding, game-playing, and manipulation.

Often considered the first “true” Mamet play, _Sexual Perversity in Chicago _established the Pulitzer Prize winner’s reputation for sharp dialogue and devastating humor. Expect to be amused, offended, or awed, but expect nothing less from the modern master: _Sexual Perversity in Chicago _gleefully lays waste to what people think relationships should be like—and shows us how they really are.
