Metered parking is finished at 7:00 pm so if you arrive at 6:00 would only have to pay for an hour $1.25. The lot across from the theater has paid parking and some spaces that are free from what I understand. Of course, all bets are off in summer when the festival is on.

Closest nice restaurant is Lumberyard. Good food but should make a reservation because others attending the performance dine here.

The pricing was good and the dates were flexible, but when I called the theater they made it clear that the seats are going to be all the way back and far right and the dates are not exchangeable.

One woman show. The star is amazing and funny. The dialogue is exactly like the movie. Womans theater. If you liked the movie you will really enjoy this play.

A Journey Down the Rivers and Streams of American Folk

“A warm, embracing, communal experience.” – _Los Angeles Times _

“Tom Dooley,” “Goodnight Irene,” “Puff, the Magic Dragon” “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “This Land is Your Land.” These songs remind us of a time when music brought us all together; when it changed us. Lonesome Traveler takes us from the backwoods of Appalachia to the nightclubs of New York and San Francisco; from the mid 1920s to the mid 1960s. Experience the music that made history and the history that made music. This is a journey down the rivers and streams of American Folk music, while presenting a revealing perspective of the roots forever embedded in our culture.
