depending on events around civic center, traffic and parking can be really difficult, so give yourself plenty of time to find parking and bring some cash, because if there is only limited parking all garages will accept cash only!

Great deal on the ticket price. The seats were nice and it wasn't a sold out performance so there was plenty of space to stretch out. There also was a free wine tasting event before the show so wish I had gotten there even earlier to enjoy that...continued

The performance was wonderful! Parking was a block and a half away, a 2 minute walk, and it was a completely wonderful experience! Would definitely recommend to friends and family!
