Visited twice and got tickets for City of Angels and The Rules; both Playhouse productions. Kat served us on both occasions and was really friendly. Overheard her colleague serving others with general info questions. Both just really helpful. No queue and well worth stopping by.

Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army
in the Civil War, this grand square has become the
city's premier shopping and entertainment district
containing the largest number of upscale department
stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theaters in
the city. It's a large open area where tourists and
locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by,
enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and
