There is tons of free parking around the athenaum. Even if you're too late for a freebie, the lot is only $6. Lots of fun restaurant south on Lincoln

Had a wonderful dinner a few blocks away at Wishbone. Made sure our waiter knew we had to be out by 7pm and then it was a quick hop over to the theater.

Description

This play deals with adult language, adult situations, and brief nudity.

“Six degrees of separation” refers to the idea that, if a person is one link away from each person they know, and two links away from each person who is known by each of the people they know, then everyone is at most six degrees away from any other person on Earth. The term was popularized by John Guare’s intriguing, insightful exploration of celebrity and the games we play to elevate our significance.
