Do not park at Benaroya. It takes a long time to leave at the end of the show. Park at the Art Museum, half a block away. And it is less expensive.

Plan extra time for getting around downtown. Parking is available in the building for moderate price. Elevator takes you right inside, so you don't have to go outside in the rain.
