    Try to arrive during the day on a weekday or before 1:00 PM on Friday, so you can get a guided tour. Otherwise, the self-guided tour is OK.

    Skip the concessions here and carve out an extra 20 minutes and get pre-theatre cocktails 4 blocks away at The River Inn. Ask for the barman Keith for a memorable cocktail.
