The weather was Windy & chilly. I wore Slacks with sweater and a leather jacket as well as being along a shawl. I like to dress for the theater although I saw all manner of attire both evenings. I always bring a shawl; it's often cold in the theater at least for me. This show is consistently sold out which warms the theater up but be prepared.
