Parking is easy in the large, paved, parking lot with an entire row of accessible spaces. If necessary, it is easy to drop a passenger off near the main entrance and then park.

We were here to see “Frank & Barbra,” a tribute to the legendary Frank Sinatra and Barbra Streisand. With an unexpected, but pleasant, opening comedian, we were treated to an evening of humor, song and banter among the performers. This was a great way to spend a pre-New Year’s Eve!
Multi-stall restrooms, with accessible stalls are located in the hallway near the theater entrance. There are baby-changing facilities.
As always, we at Destination Accessible, advise you to visit a venue’s website, www.starplayhouse.com, to “know before you go.”
