Arrive early get a good front seat if you have hearing problems opens at 20 minutes before play. If first time they have a bar. Go again to other shows. The Marsh in Berleley is a great Venue

We ate dinner afterwards a few blocks away at La Note: such a cute French restaurant with totally fresh and plentiful seafood in their delicious bouillabaisse!

No security guards are available hired inside the Marsh Theater in the event there is a disruption. Volunteer Staff and/or a few Marsh employees are available to answer questions regarding the bathroom facilities and customer assistance if needed.

Walk approximately 1 block from the Downtown Berkeley public transit train Bart system. Parking is available on the street if traveling by car.

I took BART to the Downtown Berkeley stop and walked approximately a block to the theater. It's right around the corner from the station.

I’d highly advise you arrive at least 30 minutes before the performance and sit in the very LAST ROW, in the center. You’ll thank me.

Eight thirty start time gives plenty of time to eat dinner. We ate at Toss Noodle Bar on Shattuck. A bit noisy, but great food.

Give yourself plenty of extra time to park downtown as many parking places that once were available are no longer available due to construction and downtown BART changes. Plenty of good places to eat in walking distance.

Street parking at 8 pm was free. Drive around until you find something close by.

Parking is hard to find as it is the downtown with a lot of theater, movies and restaurants but people come and go often so if you come half an hour early and drive around you will probably find a space. If not there is a reasonably priced public lot about 2 blocks away at Allston and Kittredge.

Right across the street from the Marsh Berkeley you will find Jupiter, popular with students for beer and pizza, but it has amazingly good salads and appetizers as well. Huge portions, too!
