Parking in the parking structure can be a bit confusing. Fortunately found a security guard. When I told him where I thought I had parked, he explained there was another area with similar markings and then directed me there. Also the parking structure has recently reduced hours of free validated parking from 3 or 4 hours to one. So the next time you drive to this venue and plan to park in the structure, verify if the performance provides parking validation for the entire duration of the show.

Horton Plaza revoked the 4-hour free parking option. It's expensive. Lyceum may be able to sell patrons the $10 voucher to cover parking for the evenings, as the Balboa theater does.

The kids were very talented however, I felt that the music was a little too loud and there were some points where the back up singers were louder than the principals. I was slightly confused by the gigantic screen. I took me out of the setting...continued
