I haven't tried it but I did notice that there is a Thai restaurant directly across the street.

The pay machine in the nearest public parking lot was broken. We fed it money -- twice -- and it refused to give us a receipt. In the end, we wound up driving around, looking for on-street parking. The Wilson stop on the Red Line is so close, you might want to consider public transportation, depending on how cold it is.

General admission. There aren't really any bad seats, so far as I could tell, but ours were great - right at the top of the main aisle, with a clear view right to the front of the taxi. There are three seats in that row, so if there are two of you, the third seat is a good coat seat unless the play is sold out.

They have a wine & beer bar at what passes for reasonable prices - $5 for wine, $4 for beer. Oddly, the glasses are, well, glass. You can take them into the theatre, and the management expects you to bring your own candy etc so long as you unwrap it before the performance starts. The play is short, and starts early in the evening, so you can easily plan to eat somewhere nearby, or even somewhere else, after the performance.

We drove and I managed to find a parking place, but it wasn't easy on a Saturday night. Plus the neighborhood is a little dangerous at night, at least on the side streets, according to what I have read. I'd cab it.

The play is 1 hr. 20 minutes without an intermission so make sure you don't drink much beforehand.

Straight across the street at Thai Aroma, we had the Glass Noodle soup before going to the play. It took several minutes to be brought out since the vegetables were being cut fresh for our servings. Outstanding.

Profiles is a very cool, small intimate theater. Beer & wine sold for $5 donation which you can bring into theater.

Not much to choose from in theater area, except for Bar on Buena. Good spot for drinks/bar food 1/2 block from theater.

There is wine, beer and water available. Also there are a couple bars a block or less away that have good food.
