We decided to valet park the car. It was $14 and was the easiest option when traveling with someone in their 70s. Arrive early also because the show was sold out and not everyone arrived on time. Street parking is limited.

There are so many good restaurants in the neighborhood. I was surprised at how busy the neighborhood is and Steppenwolf Theatre wasn't even performing. Dawali is so close to the theater and it was featured on the PBS show Check Please. Dawali offers a classic Mediterranean menu. Enjoy falafel, shawerma, shish kabab and more. I would recommend going there.

My wife and I loved this latest Hershey Felder creation.
We very much enjoy his bringing these musical icons to life.
Like all the famous people he has profiled, this was really
well done.

The performance exceeded my expectations. By the standing ovation and cheering at the end of the performance, I think the rest of the audience felt the same way.

Conductor, composer, pianist, author, teacher, librettist, television star … for Leonard Bernstein boundaries simply did not exist. Join us on this fascinating journey as Hershey Felder brings the composer of West Side Story, Candide, Mass and more to life.
