    Empty seats will be allocated to people holding standing room tickets at the last minute and if there is still no seat for you when intermission, you'll get a refund.

    If you've got a standing room ticket, sit on the red bench at the north entrance of the theatre and wait until the show is about to begin.

    There is a "pay your age" program but it doesn't apply to standing room tickets.

    Free street parking Sundays. Caesar salad at Cafe is mediocre & overpriced.

    Eat before you get here! Over-priced, confusing, understaffed. It could be such a nice experience. I liked Le Bon Cafe better.

    Don't eat at the cafe there. Awful, overpriced food served on paper plates. Be sure to make dinner plans elsewhere prior. FYI- there are no decent restaurants in the area.
