about The Briar Street Theatre:
Current home of Blue Man Group
, The Briar Street Theatre
- an intimate venue that somehow has room for an audience of 600 - doesn't have many bad seats, if it has any at all. (Although, Ticketmaster does list a handful of them as "obstructed".)
Kids always get a thrill from a visit to Briar Street's bathroom
, where they can hear the percussive Bathroom Song
playing over the speakers with a chorus of people on the recording yelling, "Bathroom! Bathroom!"
Sodas and glasses of champagne run a reasonable price for a theater, at $3 and $5 respectively. Bring cash, since the bar accepts cash only.
Consider using the parking lot directly across the street. The convenience of parking so close to the theatre more than compensates for the moderate $12 parking fee. But, since parking space is limited, we also recommend arrival at least a half hour before curtain to ensure a spot.
