Not many places around theater to eat, esp. when the block south of Fullerton is closed for construction.

Lincoln Avenue is closed for construction. Leave early and save time to park, or give to valet.

There were no restrictions on bringing concessions into the theatre.
The day we went the play was sold out. Be sure to check before you go if you think you can just walk in and they will have tickets, not necessarily so.
We walked to Cafe BaBa Reeba
We took public transportation.

There are so many dining options on the same block as the theater -- Thai, Italian, Middle Eastern, Mexican -- you might as well eat here before the show.
