Take Metro to China Town stattion. Use the "Arena" exit.
The weather was Sunny & quite warm.. I wore Slacks And a lite top..
National Theatre Live Screening: The Audience
Jose Andeas's Jaleo--the wonderful tapas place--is nearby.
Gallery Place Metro is right across the street. Parking around here is tough.
Goldstar says that Harmon Hall uses dynamic pricing. That means that when you buy a ticket through Goldstar, you won't know where you will end up. Don't use Goldstar for Harmon Hall unless you are willing to sit in the worst seat in the theater.
We took the metro to Gallery place and walked a block.
This area of the city has become popular enough that you can't count on being seated last minute (as we tried to do at Jaleo--an hour/45 wait!) There are plenty of pub-type places up 7th St. but all are a bit of a walk.
Turn your !@#$ cell phones off! I don't want to see it even light up.. This show is done without intermission and I don't want to be distracted a bit.
The weather was rainy.. I wore a long dress. Bring a wrap, the theater gets chilly..
It would be helpful if Goldstar could put the address of the event on the confirmation sheet. We accidentally went to the wrong Theater and missed the first 10 minutes of the show!
Man of La Mancha
Used Parkwhiz app...$15 to park about 5 minute walk from the theater
We were in the last row, center, but the theater is fairly small, so we were not too far from the stage.
The weather was sunny . I wore a light jacket..
or, add your own... We came by Metro
Unlike other theatres, Goldstar seats for Shakespeare Theatre are usually far from the stage. I was a couple of rows from the back row of the mezzanine (in the middle). I could see the stage fine but next time I'd bring my binoculars for closeups.

The Harmon Center sells some sandwiches from Taylor Gourmet, a few doors down. For a better selection, just stop at Taylor instead before the show.
There is valet parking at a number restaurants nearby for $10. We ended up parking in a ramp at 8th and E
We ran into traffic on Friday night so didn't make our dinner reservation. Arrived at Hillcountry Barbeque just down the street about 45 minutes before showtime and had plenty of time to eat and make the show.
heads up - SpotHero shows Atlantic parking garage at 901 E St at $10 for the evening....they are charging $15.
