Water Tower Place is a massive edifice of concrete, steel and glass, rising to 74 stories, many times larger than its namesake, designed to function as a shopping mall. In addition to shopping, it also features its own theater, the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place, located at the tower’s concourse. Due to the popularity of both the mall and the theater, it is important to book Broadway Playhouse parking spaces ahead of time.
The Broadway Playhouse has been in operation at Water Tower Place in one form or another since 1976. Originally known as the Drury Lane Theatre, it changed its function multiple times. For example, it started as a live theater before turning into a cinema after its first closure in 1983 before it went full circle and became a legitimate theater once more in 2004. In this incarnation, it was owned by Anthony DeSantis, who used $9 million to refurbish the establishment before he passed away three years later.
In 2010, the theater came into the possession of Broadway In Chicago, which renamed the venue as the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place. Additionally, Broadway in Chicago performed further work on the theater, including the installation of modern theater decorations, which were designed to entice more Broadway productions. Functioning as a more intimate venue than some theaters, the Broadway Playhouse can seat 550 theater-goers in the stage itself, 250 standing and 100 seated in the lobby, in addition to 200 standing and 100 seated on the stage proper. Past performances at the Drury Lane/Broadway Playhouse include I Love Lucy on Stage, Studs Terkel’s Working, Cinderella, Meet Me in St. Louis, Pinkalicious the Musical, Shout, Xanadu and the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.

If you were issued ParkWhiz credit, the credit will automatically deduct from your total on the checkout page before your next purchase. Be sure you're logged in under the account to which the credit was issued before confirming that purchase, to see the credit applied.
How do I present my my pass on-site?
Easy peasy! As the vast majority of locations in our network accept a mobile pass, this means you can use your phone or other smart device to show proof of your prepaid purchase once you arrive at the parking facility. To be sure, verify the instructions on your pass to confirm the validation method. That section is titled "When You Arrive" in-app or "How To Park" if viewing on a desktop or mobile web.
For a seamless, no-printer-required experience, check out the ParkWhiz app! Thousands of space at your fingertips. Rest assured that if searching and booking on a mobile device, we won't show you any locations that require a printed pass! At least not until cars come equipped with printers!
If your location does not accept mobile passes, you'll need to print the pass before leaving the house.
Do I have in-and-out privileges?
In most instances, no. The majority of locations on ParkWhiz, including all those in New York City, do not allow re-entry.
If any specific parking facility does allow for you to come & go during the reserved timeframe, you'll see a "Reentry Allowed" amenity icon listed; this is shown in the details section both pre-purchase and post-purchase.
If you don't see anything on the listing page pertaining to specifically to reentry privileges, it's best to assume that you will not be allowed to come and go throughout the duration of your parking pass.
Are there any additional fees on site?
Generally, no. What you see online is what you pay as long as you park within the timeframe on your parking pass. Any time parked outside the arrival or departure listed on your pass will likely incur an additional onsite fee, as determined by the parking provider. ParkWhiz purchases include tax.
The only exception to the above pertains to oversize vehicle fees, which may apply to any vehicle larger than a sedan. Fee amounts vary between individual Parking Operators, and will be assessed on-site if you do not prepay for an oversize vehicle through our platform.
Although pricing structures are determined individually by the facility owner/operator, ParkWhiz prices tend to be cheaper than drive-up in most cases! If you ever feel the rate on ParkWhiz was more expensive than drive-up, take a photo of the price on-site and send us an email!
