Use Spot Hero or Park Whiz app to reserve parking spot, but check address to be sure to enter correct lot..cheaper than special theater rate offered by lot (which you must ask for). Reserve dinner as much in advance as possible; they fill up quickly, especially Petterino's (closest).

We ate at Catch 35 and left our car with the valet there--just a quick 2 block walk to the theater. Turns out Catch 35 deducts the valet charge from your dining bill when you're heading to a show afterward--that was a nice gesture.

Don't wait to make a dining reservation. 10 days prior to our theater date was too late to get a dinner reservation.

Get there early enough to use the restroom before the show. During intermission, the ladies' rooms are packed.

Share anything else here. Just start typing... We used the "ABM Valet Parking" facility at 60 E. Randolph; I had 'prepaid On-line' for the parking. Although NOT being the last one to approach the area to request our vehicle- After about 30- minutes of waiting, we were the LAST ones to get our vehicle! Not a good system!

Share anything else here. Just start typing...If you think you'll need to visit the restroom during the brief intermission, the lines at any of the restrooms other than at the lowest level made getting back to your seat(s) 'on time'- a 'nerve-racking' experience!

The Emerald Loop is a great late-night dining spot, and it's walking distance from the theatre.

Petterino's is located at the corner but make reservations if you plan to eat here. Good food, good service and moderately priced for Italian food.

I highly recommend you reserve and pay for parking ahead of time. It will save you at least $10. You can reserve and pay as little as $20 ahead or you will be looking at about $36. without reservation and prepayment.
