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.

We tried El Barko, a Mexican restaurant on the east side of Ashland a couple blocks south of the theatre. Medium pricing but good food.

You will find several places to eat along Division street west of Ashland. Smoke Daddy is about 1800 West Division. On the cheap side, if you want a hot dog joint that has what I regard as the best Italian sausage in Chicago, drive north on Ashland a short distance for Choppers. Get the sausage with hot giardiniera. Shakes are good, too.

Park for free in the Church parking lot between the highway & Ashland, on the south side of the street. Be careful of the construction, but rest assured that you can get into the fenced lot - although maybe only if you drive in from Ashland.

If driving, give yourself extra time! I drove south on Ashland but couldn't turn left at Division. There was no parking on Ashland, went east on a street two blocks south, but because of the Kennedy expressway, I couldn't get over to Division and ended up on Elston! I had to then get to back to Division/Milwaukee/Ashland!!

It was tricky to find parking for the theater, so go a little early.

Wine, liquor and beer with some sweets are available to purchase at affordable cost. You can take you drinks into the theater for the performance.
