A Bronx Tale
Spot Hero gave many good parking options, the lot at 20 N Randolph was easy to use and close.
Do not park across the street from the Goodman. It cost me $37 for two hours. Get there early and park on the street.
park two blocks east on Randolf for 15.00 or 19.00 parking lots. otherwise parking is 40.00.
Parking, we parked in the Goodman Theatre garage on the next block, only because we did not see the entrance to the Oriental Theatre until we passed it. Go in one car to share the cost of parking if you are not taking public transportation or a cab.
The weather was warmer than a normal Chicago February.. I wore comfortable clothes, a nice top, leggings, a lightweight jacket & comfortable ankle boots. Remember, you will be sitting and walking up stairs if you are not on the main floor..
Totally with ground floor tickets as they do interact with the audience on the ground floor a lot- you have a HUGE chance of being pulled up on stage to "assist" if you are on the main stage floor.
If you park in the theater garage on Randolph be sure to get your parking ticket validated by the attendant in the parking garage lobby BEFORE you pay. Validation will give you a flat rate of $25 (otherwise you will pay $41 as I did).
Parked 1 block away at the garage connected with the discount for theatre-goers suggested on website. Purchased ahead of time online--$20. for 12 hours !
Ate at Tavern in the Park afterwards. Easy walk from the Oriental and GREAT food !
There was only one concession stand person working. Impossible line. I know you aren't allowed outside beverages but wish I had a bottle of water in my handbag
Latinicity is right across the street on the 3rd floor of the Block 37 mall. Their food court has many choices.
We purchased our tickets on Goldstar....so after the performance, we went on Goldstar again to find a restaurant to have dinner. The Metropolitan Club, in the Willis Tower, had a nice deal. (food was ok for the G.S. price.View was amazing). we went in at 530pm, just after the building became a ghost town from all of the 9 to 5ers. Had a great time!
The weather was sunny. I wore bright colored dress with shimmery shoes to compliment the musical. (take a sweater; even the Balcony seats get a wee bit cold).
For a quick bite to eat, go across the street in Block 37 to the lower level - Prêt a Manger they have good sandwiches and great coffee. They are directly across the street from the Oriental Theatre.
The weather was warm. I wore casual clothing, bring a sweater or shawl.
