There is a public parking lot directly behind the theater, on Madison. The fee is 1.50/hour. Also, there appears to be various eateries near the theater. We ate before we attended the play. Nice area to walk about in.

A new restaurant has opened directly across the street from the Pasadena Playhouse. It is the TLT restaurant. Yummy food at reasonable prices.

I wore a sleeveless dress. The Playhouse has fierce air conditioning. Bring a sweater or wrap..

There are a wealth of restaurants that have sprung up! Easy parking for $5 in the Playhouse Plaza right around the corner!

We ate before the play at "Roy's of Pasadena". Made the reservation at 6pm. We had enough time to enjoy food, drinks, conversation, social time. We ate outside on the patio. Service was wonderful. Food was great.. drinks, too. It is a short 2 min. walking distance to the PlayHouse. The reservation is needed - the restaurant is popular and busy. Many people who go to see the play go to "Roy's" before the play.

Park in the new building directly across the street from the Playhouse. It's only $5. Take the elevator to Plaza level and walk across via the big crosswalk.

Save the stress of parking twice and eat at the lovely restaurant that shares the patio: Redwhite+Bluezz. Moderately priced, excellent food and service. Just a little loud, but not unbearable.
