a fantastic MUST SEE production! You will NOT be disappointed! I took my 11 & 15 year old nephews who also LOVED IT! It was their first play production experience and they thoroughly enjoyed it. Please support this wonderful cast and director who accurately articulate the lives and feelings of most Black and People of Color experience daily. It is a great parallel to the book, “So You Want to Talk About Race” by Oluo Iejoma. In production until July 28th. Check it Out!
The weather was cold. I wore Dress warmly. The theater is chilly.
Armory exits on the Monorail level are locked by the time the Center theater production finishes, so be sure to exit the building on ground level. Also, I’m told that the Monorail will shut down weekdays at 9:00 soon after New Year’s Day until spring. Good to know for ease in planning exit routes after play ends, especially for us handicapped folks.
I was surprised at the increase in parking in the lot near MoPop. I could have done better in the garage, but it was too late by the time I found out!
The weather was hot!. I wore nice slacks and a light blouse, but then I tend to dress up a bit for theatre....
Come really early - at least half and hour before because wherever you park, you have to walk a distance to get to Center House in the middle of Seattle Center.
Park in the Seattle center parking lot across the street from EMP - not the open lot next to it which is super expensive ($22 for the evening only)
All I wanted was a cup of decaf coffee from the concessions but they only had caffeinated - in the evening?
I wore always bring a sweater or jacket because the air conditioning can leave you shivering. I had mine but people behind me were cold..
This show has nudity. I promise you it's an integral part of the story, and it just wouldn't be the same without it. If you can't handle it go see another show. Don't ruin it for others (including the actors) by groaning, gasping or trying to hide your eyes.
We usually dine at McMenamin's, which is within walking distance, fast, and delicious.
For Kavalier and Clay's dinner break, Blue Water Taco had the longest line and the Pie place had the shortest line. Blue Water Taco people had to eat quickly to make it back in the allotted.

We dined in the Armory. We a delicious and relatively cheap dinner at Plum Pantry ($12 each) and then sat at Quincy's having a glass of wine and watching the final four before the show. It was relaxing to be just steps away and we didn't have to eat fast food.
Finding the theater was almost impossible! Seattle Center, please provide better signage and directions
The weather was sunny, windy, etc.. I wore a sweater, flip-flops, etc..
