    If you've given birth ever, don't drink anything at this theater. The lines are insane.

    The best seats are in the back of the orchestra or front of the mezzanine. Excellent sight lines and great sound.

    No drinks allowed in the theatre, even though they still serve them right up to curtain time, so drink fast!

    Bathrooms bottom floor in the center and on the north side of the Balcony and Gallery levels. Women, hurry unless you want to spend intermission in a line. Men, no need to hurry.
