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.

Good, solid play but not an "absolutely can't miss" experience.

This play is so good that I will see it with friends again this Saturday. With half-price tickets, Goldstar makes it easy to go back for a second look!
