We went to a matinee and bought lunch on the Plaza. Not inexpensive, but tasty and convenient.

Traffic on 101 getting there was HORRIBLE, it took us 2 1/2 hours bumper to bumper the whole way. Made mistake of merging on to 110 and got off at 4th. Next time we will stay on 101 and get off at Temple.

Saw this production in NY at the Public Theatre, but I think the LA production is even better. This is my 3rd time seeing it and I would love to see it one more time before it leaves. It is an amazing piece of theatre.
