I didn't go to remote parking lot, but found parking and used Pay box on Morse Street. It's $4 for 2hrs. But you'll have to run during intermission and add more to the meter as the show over 2hrs long. There is a very cozy bar on Glenwood Ave, right next to the theater for before or after show drinks.
There's a Leona's on Sheridan just south of Morse.
The L stop is right on Morse & Glenwood. But if you drive, be prepared to look around for parking. A lot of it is metered, which creates a timing problem unless you use the Park Chicago app to keep you from running out of time. We found free street parking a couple of blocks northwest of the theatre, north of Morse.
Snacks & soft drinks available at the theatre but it's a short intermission if that's when you get them. We usually eat at the Heartland Cafe, just just north on the corner of Morse & Glenwood. But we were there on a Friday evening, and as we walked south on Glenwood to the theatre, there was a sausage truck right outside a bar, so it looks like you could get a brat & a beer if the truck is there.
I wore jeans & polo shirt. Be sure to wear socks & bring a sweater for this performance - they generate fog & it's chilly in the front rows. In fact, the theatre provided us with an airplane blanket for our first row seats, which we needed. .
Apparently they do have a parking lot a couple blocks away and run a shuttle to the theater. Call ahead to get direction to that lot, since street parking was pretty crazy.
The weather was warm.. I wore shorts and a lightweight top. However, you need to bring a jacket as it's quite cold in the theater!.
