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.

We loved this 1 man comedy play. We could relate with all the ethnic, cultural and aging stories and jokes. Tobin is an extremely talented comedian and actor. He instantaneously switches roles, changes dialects and imitates all kinds of sounds. ...continued

Loved it. Laughed non-stop for 2 hrs (as did the entire audience -- and they were not all from NY ;-) ). The guy is amazing. The seats from Goldstar were excellent -- 2nd row center. Highly recommend this event for a great nite out. Also,...continued
