Public transportation is very convenient. I prefer to walk up from Penn Station, and even later at night, if you can endure all else that Times Square entails, the activity ensures it not being desolate for a walk back. That said, due to the length of performance, the LIRR schedule was not accommodating on my return, even having expedited by subway.

I wore Dress to your own taste and comfort. All can be seen from the most elegant to very casual. Regardless of weather, it is good to have layers as simple as a scarf or shawl that you can use to make yourself comfortable in any theater, but I have always found Lincoln Center venues to be well adjusted..

Fiorello's is always a great place to get a satisfying meal before any Lincoln Center event. Right across the street, so you can relax. Food is good, selection broad, and service superior.

The weather was hot. I wore a shift dress. But carry a shawl or sweater - the air conditioning inside is cold..

People were nicely dressed but definitely more casual. Some however dressed as for the opera.

If you need a drink, a snack, and have the money, why not?

If you want to dress up, fine. If not, that's fine, too.
