Please, stay in your seat and applaud for the hard working singers, dancers, musicians and conductor. Only in the USA do many in the audience jump up and run out the moment the curtain comes down. Truly insulting to the performing company.

The weather was 60's, perfect. I wore LBD, PEARLS, PUMPS, DRESSED IN HITCHCOCK STYLE, SO FUN.
I wore Check the ticket prices with the event organizer first because Goldstar MAY be charging you more than what it costs if bought in-house..
Indie Food & Wine on 65th recommended .. crowded (of course) .. tasty & reasonable
Park at a chain parking lot (like Icon), and get a deal online. I got parking for $28 by requesting a coupon be emailed to me.

Great to have dinner at the restaurant inside - have the first and second course before the show and your dessert awaits with coffee on first interval. Formal dining and not cheap - but very pleasant experience, convenient, pretty setting - and good food.
