Sit a bit higher up (rather than stage level) if possible so you can see the full scope of the dress. The production does not have an intermission, so make sure to arrive on time. Plan to not leave for the restroom or any other reason so you do not miss a word said. This is a story you really must pay attention to to be able to absorb it as a whole.

If you park in the garage nearest the theatre (at the 2nd Street garage, near San Carlos Street), you'll be charged only $5 flat rate after 6 pm evenings.

The weather was hot. I wore a long sleeve blouse and long pants, but theatre is well air-conditioned - not too hot, and not too cold.

Park @ 3rd st garage — if before 5pm, validate @ tech museum (close 5 pm) — this will become a flat rate fee of $5 — then get a $5 parking coupon from original joes — the parking becomes FREE!

Theater is next to large parking garage and parking is inexpensive. Even if full, there are other lots nearby.

Venue is terrific. Looks like all seats have excellent line of sight. Located conveniently in downtown SJ near SJSU.

Remember when going downtown to first check if SAP center is having a hockey game or concert. Definitely will clog 280 and 87 freeways.
