Have dinner at the Beehive, in the same complex. Sit at the bar and have apps and one of their great cocktails. Very affordable for a downtown dining experience. And then the play is two doors down.

The show was 70 minutes in length no intermission. The costumes were clever but I would have prefered a few less costume changes and more impressions of the character.
