The weather was cool but pleasant then cold and snowed when we left. I wore comfortable pants, sweater, jacket and hat.

Brown line is easy. Come early and with patience, you can get a free spot on the street.

The adjacent restaurant (formerly Deleece, now Grassroots) is convenient and the food is good. The service is a bit harried (went early on a Friday night) and servers almost exude they don't want to be there. But food and drink are good.

Bummer that you can not bring in/purchase beverages or snacks. If they'd get their liquor licenses, they'd really make a killing.

If you go to a show that ends before six, it appears many Permit Parking streets are open to everyone. I bought a SpotHero parking space and then walked past a number of street spaces on Waveland on the way to the theater.

Parking can be hard to find, permit only on the side streets.

The theatre is slightly chilly, so you may want to bring a jacket, sweater or blazer.

Its Chicago neighborhood theatre. Don't be timid. Enjoy your drive knowing there is always street parking. We parked a half block away from the theater and it was free

Dine at Deleece which is literally next door to the theater. In fact, you use the theater entrance to enter the restaurant. You only park one time this way, and the drinks and food were very good. And Deleece is on restaurant.com for savings!

Restaurant next to venue was ok. However, walk over to Clark & you've got your choice of several good restaurants & bars.
