    Plan where you will park before going and allow extra time. If you're planning to park nearby it will be difficult to move at the traffic lights when all the people are walking to the theater too.

    Their weather policy puts their bottomline ahead of the guests' safety. Cancelling 1 hour before the show during Snow Jam 2014, after saying show will go on, NO refund all day. Friend got in accident

    Sit in the upper balcony for Phantom. He runs right in front of you. Sit on the front 4 rows for snow during the Nutcracker Ballet. Visit the summer theater series for the organ rising from the floor.
