Parking is available at the Detroit Opera House parking garage, located on Broadway. Parking is $10 (unless there's a special event). There's also limited street parking on Woodward (no charge on Sunday).

    I have had too many fraud problems with PayPal -- in fact, one is pending now. Can I pay at the door? I won't use PayPal, for sure.
