Get there early because the line can get bottle necked, and there is a separate line for Goldstar tickets. We missed the 1st scene because the line was so long. 5 minutes early was not enough time.
Bring binoculars to the FOX, especially if you are up in the Balcony. It makes the whole experience that more special when you can see the actor's faces.
If you want to park in the $25 ($20 for handicapped) lot adjacent to the Fox Theater you must prepay for parking. Also, we found that a large group of people were let in to the performance after it started and we would like to urge people to arrive to the theater early as it is disrespectful to both the actors and the audience to have large numbers of people arriving after the performance begins.
Public Draft House has excellent good and service. Remember to check curtain time. Weeknight shows often begin at 7:30
We had very little time to eat and decided to try PDH in the corner of the Fox theater. They found two seats at a communal table with another couple who we enjoyed talking with, served up good food quickly and were attuned to getting us out in time for our curtain.
We ate at Mary Mac's Tea Room before the show. Best Southern food ever!
Baraonda, less than a block from the Fox Theater, is a guaranteed good meal before or after a show.
Again, if you are going to dine near the Fox, be aware that some of the establishments offer an "event" menu that is higher priced than their normal menu.
If you're going to park near the Fox, be prepared to be price gouged with their "event" parking rates.
Herban Fix is only a couple blocks away and is the finest Vegan restaurant in all Atlanta!
If you arrive early, you may be able to find street parking $8 for 4h. I arrived at 6.50pm for 7.30pm show and got lucky. Otherwise, the special event parking was $25 and $30
Don't use Goldstar if you and your date want to sit together. We picked up tickets at box office and found they weren't together. Give me a break.
Atlanta Ballet’s Nutcracker
I wore You will find all manner of dress at the Fox but it is such a lovely theater that you just might take this opportunity and dress up a little!.
Parking near the theater is 20-30 dollars, may as well park across the street at the historic Georgian Hotel, this event was 20$ and was easy in and out
On nice weather days dine on the terrace across the street at the Georgian Terrace, Livingston Restaurant. They have a wonderful Sunday Brunch and the mimosas were just what we needed prior to the show!
