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.

I more or less agree with the previous two comments. Too many showtunes not enough jazz. Acting and dancing were good. Plot did not really captivate me, I didn't really feel an emotional connection much except for two scenes near the end. This...continued

This was a torturous night at the theater! The plot is a mess, it drags on and one. The music is jazz influenced but the numbers are not inspiring, interesting or well put together. The cast was pretty amatuer with lots of overacting and unfocused...continued
