We parked our car in Pasadena, had dinner and then Ubered to the play! So easy, dropped off right in front of the Ahmanson and we Ubered home afterwards. No waiting past 3 minutes to be picked up! Will do that again in the future!
Why are people wearing shorts and t-shirts? Also, no, you aren’t being cute when you climb over seats. You are disrespecting the theatre.
The Play That Goes Wrong
The weather was Beautiful . I wore A dressy, long cotton shirt.
The Play That Goes Wrong
The dining at the center is scarce, but there is one place you can purchase food from. I also say people bring a picnic and just use the tables provided to eat. You can also dine at some of the downtown restaurants before attending the show
we drove from Long Beach and parked in the Music Center parking garage. The flat rate was $9.00
The weather was cool after a somewhat warm day. I wore long sleeve shirt, jeans, trainers..
The weather was a bit chilly.. I wore a nice jacket and some dark colored jeans. Nothing too fancy or too casual..
I recommend leaving to go to the theatre for at least an hour before the show. LA traffic is rough, and if you don't wanna struggle a bit with parking, I recommend taking an Uber/Lyft.
Restaurants are being built and food options as well as a store are lacking at this time.
The weather was cold Friday evening. I wore Work pants with a sweater top..
The Ahmanson / Music Center complex is under construction right now and if you have to use the elevator, it's a long walk from the adjacent building. My knees are not escalator friendly, so that meant an extended walk which made my knees even more unhappy. Parking is extremely reasonable for DTLA - $9.00 - unheard of! No center row, so arrive early if your seats are in the middle of the theatre.
Get there early. Parking is a nightmare since they take the money as you enter. It does make it easier to exit, but it is slow going to park. Even though you can see lots of empty spaces as you go down, down, down, you are not allowed to enter those floors. Signage is awful in the garage.
No intermission. We use the bathrooms outside the theatre in the prefab. They are always empty compared to inside.
Parking under the Music Center is crowded so plan an additional 15 - 20 minutes for parking.
