Parking: The free parking at the Westwood public structure (paid for by the Geffen) is a real hassle when everyone leaves at once. We pay $5.50 for a lot a block away from the theater and are home in bed by the time the last person straggles out of that slow garage line.

The whole cast was great, the tone was not as dire as the synopsis might suggest - there was crisp dialogue and characters acting in unexpected, authentic ways.
