Seating is informal in a small venue. Just show up before show and choose your own seats. No bad seats in the place.

Parked in a street level metered lot half way between restaurant on 5th & theater on 4th. Easy walk to both.

We had a lovely afternoon tea at the Kings Head Pub at 2nd and Santa Monica before the play. Great regular pub grub too, fish and chips, chicken tikka masala etc. And a wicked ginger beer too! Yum!

Plenty of restaurants nearby; avoid the small Asian one next door to the south, at all costs.

Driving was a nightmare. Santa Monica seems to have failed to provide basic traffic control, It took me 30 minutes to drive from Sherman Oaks to the borders of Santa Monica, and over an hour to drive to the location and find parking. If you can find another way, don't drive.

No food / drink in theater, no intermission either. Eat drink before you arrive. Lots of restaurants walking distance (Third Street Promenade)

The Santa Monica Playhouse is tucked between and behind a couple of other businesses. There's no evident signage. There was simply a posted Playbill outside the door.

There's a Tender Greens restaurant within 2 blocks. Allow lots of time before the show. Downtown Santa Monica is very busy.

First time we were not able to park in inexpensive city parking structure right across the street. But a similarly-priced city structure was just 1.5 blocks further up.
