Very nice patio atmosphere to hang out before the show. Also have wine tastings on Sundays. Not sure if that is always the case.
They validate parking at one of the garages then I think it is $4. I went into the ramp just the the right of the theatre which charges a flat rate of $7 for all day. This was on a Sunday evening.
The weather was Slightly cool, but felt nice under the heat lamps when on the patio.. I wore The norm was dress pants and collared shirt for men. I did see a couple people in shorts, but not the norm. A few in suits and ties..
We ate The Tuck Tavern on Wilshire just down the street and had a wonderful meal and excellent service.
We parked in the suggested lot near the Trader Joes and all went well. Getting out is always a challenge as people just don't know how to deal with parking garages
The weather was typical southern California evening. I wore jean, linen long sleeve shirt and trainers..
I noticed there is a rush line for last minute tickets. Not so sure how that all works.
The Playhouse does have some eats, prepackaged, kinda like Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. There is a bar, not sure what they serve though. There is a patio area. I went to the CB&TL around the block.
The weather was Perfect for So Cal. I wore I was in dress jeans, a large blouse. People come in causal to festive. It's really quite optional..
There is parking on Weyburn with easy access to the restaurants. The parking for the theater is a short walk away and is validated for only a part of the cost. Probably could have remained in the lot on Weyburn and walked to the theater from there as well.
lots of places to eat in Westwood. We went to BJs, which was nearby and good
There are so many restuarants within walking distance of the theatre, i.e. Barney's Beanery, CPK.
Seating was great in the Mezzanine. We enjoyed the performance. Acting was superb.
