The theater is located in the lower level food court, in the L back corner.
The air conditioning must not of been turned on. Most places are very cold, this place was kind of warm. Would recommend dressing in a light shirt, nothing heavy.
Arrive early for best parking spaces. Fills up quickly. Should be better when they move to their new location.
Snack food varies from one performance to another. Cold beverages available, sometimes candy or other snacks and sometimes not. If you are hungry, eat something before you attend.
They have a small snack bar where soda & water, as well as snacks (candy, crackers, etc.) were for sale. I might suggest patrons eat - or at least open - snacks prior to entering the theatre, so you're not "that guy" crinkling the wrapper during the performance. Argh.
The weather was cool & windy. I wore a tunic & leggings, with a wrap. I was a bit cool inside (but I often am); the woman in front of me was fanning herself, so I'd suggest layers to ensure maximum flexibility & comfort..
Arrive early - at least 10 minutes prior to doors - to ensure good seating options. The seats at the rear are significantly more comfortable (more padding, arm rests, cup holders) than the chairs toward the front.
We had our young grandson with us as he loves football. My concern with having a young person with us is the cursing in the play. I had not thought enough ahead of time to expect that,so I would not advise taking young children to see this.
Went to Culinary Dropout restaurant. We split a salad w/salmon and a flatiron steak w/fries. All ingredients fresh and very tasty. Highly recommended.
Since we were celebrating my sister, cousin and my September birthdays, we dined at Roaring Fork just down the street (the Fish Tacos were out-of-this-world). The theater has a very small snack bar (no alcohol offered) that is open during intermission only, so it is best you plan to eat before your selected performance.
