Parking on the street is a bit dicey. We found a spot by circling around onto Clybourn. But if you drive, leave time to seek a spot unless you plan to use the parking lot - $13.

They have hearing assistance devices, which my wife used, but the actors aren't miked, so the devices work by amplifying all the sounds in the theatre, including when someone in the audience coughed. Better than nothing, I suppose, but I didn't use one and had very little trouble hearing. What I missed was due to accent, not inability to hear.

The parking lot has no elevators, quite a hike for seniors parked on the top level. Didn't realize we could have gotten valet parking.

At Steppenwolf, at least, if you're at Will Call first, you get the best available tickets. So, linger not and get there when tickets become available.

Although the Goodman Theatre website advertises parking in a lot adjacent to the theatre, it is really only for employees and for wheelchair access. Park in the garage nearby.
