Michael's Pizza is just a block away and there's a Thai restaurant across the street.

Take public transit. The Sheridan stop on the Red Line is only a 5 minute walk to the theater, and parking in that area is not fun.

I went to this event because it was a "Roar of the Crowd." I didn't particularily like this play. There were some gratuitous scenes that didn't further the already thin plot line. Their only purpose seemed to be shock value.
