We easily found street parking at a meter. You can use a credit card at the meters (or change), print a receipt and put it on your car dashboard. Our parking was $2 an hour for a maximum of 3 hours, but meters are only required until 10pm.

The weather was Warm evening. I wore shorts and a tshirt. It was very warm in the theater. It's a very small venue, and the seats are packed close together. Be prepared to snuggle up to the person next to you, and for it to be very warm inside. .

If you're into audience participation, sit in the front row near the aisle. You're sure to interact with the cast during the show at some point.

Parking can be scarce, so arrive early and if possible go on Sunday. The meters don't have to be fed.

Parking is a bit tight in this neighborhood. There is paybox parking on Milwaukee and on Ashland and Division. Paybox parking is free on Sundays

If you're taking kids, make sure you take something to snack on during intermission. They don't really have anything for kids. I took crackers and it worked out well.

Get there early to get a good seat, not a bad view in the house but some of the seats are broken and uncomfortable. Plays tend to be general admission.

You can bring your own food, or order tacos at the beginning of the show. You aren't allowed to bring drinks in, but drink prices are very reasonable.
