The best location in the theatre are front orchestra seats between #10-25. orchestra. The mezzanine probably had a good view also, but was sold out when I purchased tickets.

Lots of inexpensive parking near the Playhouse. Easy to get to from the 10 on to Arroyo Parkway: almost a straight line.

One thing: this is Pasadena. The residents are elegant and proud of it. You don't have to be dressed up much, but it helps to look nice. I'm from Venice, and Venice dress isn't exactly like Pasadena. People weren't mean, but they were looking at my outfit since it's not like theirs: art school funk vs. Land's End.

The weather was evening, summer.. I wore a long skirt, blouse, orthopedic shoes I'm stuck with, but should have been dressy flats..

2 hour street parking off by 6. Park for free on the street but get there early enough to find a space!
