The weather was Cool but dry. I wore Smart dress with high hills. People had anything on from ball gowns to jeans and sandals. I felt very comfortable dressed up. It was cool inside, so warm dress was good..

Do not park at Benaroya. It takes a long time to leave at the end of the show. Park at the Art Museum, half a block away. And it is less expensive.

Plan extra time for getting around downtown. Parking is available in the building for moderate price. Elevator takes you right inside, so you don't have to go outside in the rain.

Benaroya seems to have the best flow from garage to hall to garage and back out onto the street. It's expensive, but not having to take your life in your hands to exit is value added!

We often enjoy a light dinner at Fonte Cafe and Wine Bar before shows at Benaroya. Much nicer than the choices in the hall.

If you arrive in time to park in the lot, parking is no problem. But don't kid yourself thinking you'll find free street parking.

The Fairmont Hotel has a lovely unknown gem, known as The Terrace. Great place to meet or enjoy Happy Hour before the show.
