We bought food at Panera and brought it to the outdoor tables on the plaza of the Music Center. Bring your beverages with you; I forgot and paid $4 for a small bottle of water. But it really is fun to eat outside on a warm evening.

Ate at Vespaio near the Broad, walking distance from the Music Center. Can be expensive, or not (we shared a huge salad and tasty pizza, along with apple crisp.)

This is a highly entertaining, sharply-paced, smart play. You won't be disappointed. The ACTING is amazing! The play itself is slightly didactic and skewed in one direction, but it still gets you to think. Clever effects, too. A fun evening...continued

Great show. Didn't know what to expect from it, but Taper has had an amazing season this year so I just bought a ticket and went. Glad I did! Exceptional acting, stunning set, and a play that left me thinking about time, the universe, and everything.

Play is great fun. Well written and acted. And there are no bad seats at the Mark Taper.
