No late seating, so beware! And be patient when being directed to your seats/ getting your program. FYI, the even numbered seats are near the theatre door with odds opposite; all two-digit seat numbers (i.e., 29, 31, etc.) are on the "sides" with the three-digit ones (i.e., 102, 104, etc.) facing centre stage.

Mosiac restaurant is in the Sheraton Hotel about 2 blocks from the Stage. Outstanding happy hour! We got two beers, two glasses of wine, crab cakes, a huge platter of calamari, and a huge dish of Honey Walnut Prawns...all for $56 by sitting in the lounge/bar area where drinks and appetizers are half price 5-7p. Excellent service, food, and prices !!!

Depending on where you sit, you might find the seat a bit dusty perhaps with some little bit of cobweb or not. But comparatively, it's still cleaner than going to movie theater where people or kids slob over the seat with food, etc.

Parking on a Sunday afternoon was challenging, and after 15 minutes of looking for street parking I ended up in one of the many lots that increase their rates when there's a show...10 dollar flat fee for parking---

After the show, check out Cafe Stritch. Its two blocks from the theater. A live band usually plays til midnight. They make good strong drinks, and there are usually tables available at that time. They also serve coffee for you non-alcoholic types.

They have a small bar setup outside (bring cash) to purchase drinks. They only had Heineken and Sam Adams for beers, a couple wine selections, and the usual for mixed drinks. About $6 each. You can bring drinks into the theater.
