186 Magic Theatre Tips
- Take public transit 1
- Arrive early 1
I see well over 100 plays each year and am hesitant to book this venue/theatre group only because of the location. From Concord, the choices are to drive or take one train plus two busses. Driving is expensive from Concord because of the bridge toll and parking costs at the location. That said, I have yet to be disappointed by what Magic offers its audiences.
Please make the effort to read every sign about parking. I thought a certain sign applied to another area and ended up with a $192 parking ticket.
Eat before hand. There is a concession counter, but it's under-staffed, so there's little chance of being served before the show starts and no chance at all during intermission.
Chestnut Street (and Lombard) are well within walking distance and have hundreds of restaurants. Check Yelp.
Get coffee at the Library's bookstore/coffeehouse across from the Magic.
Another Way Home
Fort Mason charges, unfortunately. But not difficult to find parking outside of it.
They should warn people about Off the Grid on Friday night.
