All seating is open, first come fist served so if you arrive early you will have a GREAT seat, but it's a gorgeous venue and there are no bad seats in the house.

Wear comfortable shoes. It's quite a hike onto the campus to the theater.

If you are pressed for time, don't waste it trying to find street parking. $1/hr and easy to pay via machine in the lot.

We parked in PS 6, ate at The Dining Room and walked across the pedestrian bridge for a short jaunt to the theatre. Meal was good, but a bit overpriced. We had a 2for1, but had to pay full price for one of us.

There were very few places to dine near the campus, which was surprising. We eventually found a Smash Burger on El Cajon Blvd. Eating in SD or Old Town might be a better option.

Park in the massive 8 story parking structure directly to the West of the theater. Park on the 8th floor and walk across the sky bridge to the theater.

Parking is tricky at SDSU. Allow a lot of time to get to the theater. If you can, take the trolley.
