Plenty of snacks and drinks for purchase or you can go to dinner at a great Thai restaurant, Racha, or grab some pizza at Pagliacci. Both are walking distance a few minutes away.

We circled for street parking but ended up paying $15 to park in the Seattle Center garage across from McCaw Hall on Mercer St. There is a convenient skybridge to cross the street.

Description

_Clybourne Park _

by Bruce Norris

directed by Braden Abraham

A spin on Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, this razor-sharp new satire takes a jab at race and real estate in a Chicago neighborhood’s past and present.
