The parking lot partnership with the school is a great idea. The shuttle was marked and there and waiting before we arrived not leaving room for wonder if feeling nervous :) No reason not to use this lot. Parking lot was marked clearly with a flag sign noting it was the correct lot for the theater.

Use the shuttle service! Park in the high school lot and the shuttle van is there ASAP. Easiest way to get there.

This neighborhood is a restaurant desert. Dine elsewhere before coming to the theater.

Easy access on L. Get off at Morse stop. Short walk to theatre. Also theatre has lot and shuttle most of the time.

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!.

I wore I wore a dress with a light jacket and I wrapped myself in the blanket the theater provided to all audience members, but it was still like being inside a refrigerator. Bring a down jacket. .

I wore a sweater - the theater A/C is very strong - but they do provide blankets!.

This gem of a little theater is within walking distance of a Leona's restaurant, which has its own parking lot. It also is only two short blocks from a Giordano's. We were able to park right on the street.

The weather was Sunny and moderate, however I recommend wearing long pants and a long sleeve shirt to the theater. It was rather chilly for most. .

The theatre is a bit chilly (they even provide blankets)! So if you are prone to getting cold in a theatre, bring a sweater or jacket.

This theater is very small and steep; might be difficult to navigate for anyone with mobility issues.

Park at theater's free parking lot at Ravenswood and Morse, and take the shuttle 3 minutes away to the theater.

Street parking can be scarce. Arriving a little bit earlier so you can find a place to park is probably a good idea.
