Going to the venue, we took a bus from Ventura Blvd and the Redline at Universal. We took Lyft coming home. Lyft pick up is best on the West side of DCP.

We picked up food at "Upstage" and another snack venue, both on the East side of the theater. Next time, we'll pack sandwiches or light fare. There are tables and chairs around both venues.

There's always several bars set up and places to buy snacks inside. Dining options within walking distance.

There are (2) parking garages nearby. Be afraid to brave traffic to get into them if you are coming up the opposite side of the street. Usually attendants are there to help. When I went, parking was $9 and they take cash or card, but they like you to have it ready immediately to keep things going. Come early or else you're going to be way down on the lower levels.

The weather was It was at night so kind of chilly. I wore slacks and a nice top with flats. Some people dress super casual like sneakers and things, but some people like to go all out. Really depends but overall its a place where business casual or like dressy/casual is acceptable. But it will be cold in the auditorium so come with a jacket no matter the weather outside or the time of day.

The website makes it seem as though there are quite a few food options on site but when we went on Thursday evening it seemed that evening was closed or outrageously expensive. We ended up walking a significant distance to get dinner. Come prepared, especially with kids.

Park in the Music Center lot. It’s efficient, staff attentive, and above all else, affordable!

Get there at least 15 minutes before start time. It goes completely dark once it starts and its difficult to find your seats. Parking is $9 Please, if you buy snacks, don't get super crunchy ones. It's distracting.

Public transportation ( metro Red line) is very reliable ( the train comes every 10 minutes), hustle free and cheap.
