Arrive early to park at a meter. There are many eateries in the area. If you're patient, someone will be leaving.
Eat before you go. The show is very long (3 hours), but worth it. You'll need more than snacks and drinks to get you through the first 2 hours before intermission.
The weather was Dry and sunny. I wore Work clothes. Didn't plan to attend that day and it didn't matter..
Park in the reasonably priced Pearl Street garage. (I think that's its address.)
We drove in. On the theatres' website they had parking suggestions. We parked at University Park @ 55 Franklin Street. It's about a 5 minute walk to the theatre. At will call, make sure to get a validation card, this will save $'s on parking! On Sat/Sun it's only $5 to park with this card!
The weather was Rainy. I wore I wore, what I thought would keep me warm. Hung my raincoat up. Sorry I did that. There was cold air blowing throughout the show. I noticed I was not the only one affected by this. .
Recommend Thelonious Monkfish @ 524 Mass. Ave. We had an early dinner, after the 3pm show. It was before they got crowded. Even when it did, we found it was easy to carry on a conversation. Most important, the service was good & the food delicious.
Venue was easy to find, intimate, very comfortable and staff was very helpful and friendly. Parking was convenient and reasonably priced. Dress to me, was business casual and the audience adhered respectfully to it. Great time. Highly recommended.
Parking in Public lot across the street.
before matinee, Brookline Lunch was great and reasonable and just around the corner!
The chairs are not padded well, so bring a pillow if you're prone to pain.
The weather was Normal winter day in MA. I wore a sweater and a jacket. There is a place to hang the Jacket and the temperature was maintained well inside the theater.
University Park @ MIT garage next to Star Market (55 Franklin St) $5.00 parking with validated ticket.
