Parking costs $10 or $12, depending on the day. No elevator in the garage. Street parking is scarce, and since there's no intermission, you can't go out & pay for more time.

Brilliantly performed. Thought provoking and deeply moving. No intermission, so make sure to take care of everything beforehand.

It was not your "regular" play by any means, but anybody familiar with Beckett's work would deffinitely appreciate it. The acting was excellent, as expected from fine Steppenwolf ensemble.
