The show is 2.5 hours long, so try one of the many restaurants in downtown SJ ahead of time

Make sure you print out your ticket confirmation, so you will be waved through. Otherwise , you will need to stop and have your purchase confirmed. Although I understand the need to "reserve" seats for the lobby volunteers in this general seating theatre, choosing less conspicuous seats would be a better option.

Street parking is available though it can be a bit tricky to find. We managed to park about 2 blocks from the theater at 5 minutes before showtime.

Easy to walk to from Downtown. There are only 100 seats in this open-seating theater so come early for the best seating choice.
