The website for the venue, Spreckles Theatre) notes that valet parking is available. Well, parking in the building is a flat $22; across the street in the NBC building, covered parking is $10. Caveat emptor.

Share anything else here. Just start typing...Parking at the underground theater locaton is ok when parking, but getting your car after the show is a very, VERY long, process... Not worth the price and waiting time. It would be more efficient to walk fix blocks than wait the hour or so to get your car...

Share anything else here. Just start typing...Parking in the building is a wonderful idea! It is ten dollars cash, and well worth ever penny. The attendants were quick, and efficient. I would highly recommend that you park here. An elevator or stairs, take you right up to the library

The Sushi Deli 2 is right next door! If you plan on eating before the show you must arrive very early because there is a long wait (35-60mins.) Also the service takes a long time to get your food to the table but its cheap and its pretty good. $4 drinks and $5 average sushi.
