They have a small snack bar where soda & water, as well as snacks (candy, crackers, etc.) were for sale. I might suggest patrons eat - or at least open - snacks prior to entering the theatre, so you're not "that guy" crinkling the wrapper during the performance. Argh.

The weather was cool & windy. I wore a tunic & leggings, with a wrap. I was a bit cool inside (but I often am); the woman in front of me was fanning herself, so I'd suggest layers to ensure maximum flexibility & comfort..

Arrive early - at least 10 minutes prior to doors - to ensure good seating options. The seats at the rear are significantly more comfortable (more padding, arm rests, cup holders) than the chairs toward the front.

We had our young grandson with us as he loves football. My concern with having a young person with us is the cursing in the play. I had not thought enough ahead of time to expect that,so I would not advise taking young children to see this.

Went to Culinary Dropout restaurant. We split a salad w/salmon and a flatiron steak w/fries. All ingredients fresh and very tasty. Highly recommended.

Since we were celebrating my sister, cousin and my September birthdays, we dined at Roaring Fork just down the street (the Fish Tacos were out-of-this-world). The theater has a very small snack bar (no alcohol offered) that is open during intermission only, so it is best you plan to eat before your selected performance.

We went to the Raging Fork at 4800 Scottsdale Rd afterwards and it was great. Opens at 4 for Happy Hour menu and $5 cocktails (dinner at 5). Aps were enough for us and VERY tasty! Highly recommend.

Seating is open, and I'd recommend sitting in the middle or the left side of the theater, otherwise the actors' backs will be towards you for a decent amount of the show.

We go for sushi at Sting Ray, about a half mile south of the theater on Scottsdale.
