PARKING: A $10 parking pass was available for Horton Plaza OR the NBC garage. As I was not certain I was going to make it on time, I chanced Horton Plaza and was delighted with the validation and pass.

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.

Description

This Tony Award-nominated musical by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime) is based on “The Little Mermaid” novel My Love, My Love by Rosa Guy. Presented as a “play within a play,” the story is told in song and dance by a cast of village storytellers who join together during a storm on a small island of the French Antilles. The tale they tell is one of struggle between races, classes and the will of the gods who rule their superstitious lives. Forbidden love, destiny and fate make this enchanting story a winner for all ages.
