Small theater. Poorly ventilated. Very hot and stuffy. I'll never come here for a performance in the summer again.
Lots of places to eat surrounding the theatre. I didn't try yet but the ramen house next to eat looks promising. There are good spots for street parking on a Sunday afternoon.
Try the Ralph's parking lot at the corner of Vineland and Magnolia.
Many interesting restaurants in the same block. Also a Starbucks at the end of the block. This area is really jumping with an upscale, young nightlife scene.
The cast comes out into the lobby after the show so you can talk to them and take pictures without having to find the stage door.
There is a nice big lobby with concessions for sale; so you can relax and hang out before the show.
The weather was Cool. I wore pants and a warm sweater (January). The chairs are not very cushy..
Street parking is free after 6pm, but give yourself at least 20mins to find parking. Ariel and prince are usually standing on the left hand side of the stage.
Parked on Vine, arrived early which made parking options easier.
Time of arrival dictates seating, first come first served, although all seats pretty good.
On Sat/ Sunday, you can find street parking a few blocks away, west of Lankershim if you're willing to walk 10 - 15 minutes to the theater.
The weather was sunny. I wore sundress and comfortable shoes.
Make sure you leave plenty of time to find parking around the theater. There is parking all around, but sometimes it's harder to find. The theater's website www.cupcaketheater.com has a section entirely devoted to parking. That helped me a lot.
Go early Parking is scarce, Try the popcorn!Share anything else here. Just start typing...
Tickets are first come first serve -- if you arrive earlier you're more likely to get a better seat. There's no bad seat, sure, but you'll have a larger pick if you get there early.
