Google Map Search  “ Staller Center Loading Dock”

Long Island Expressway  (interstate 495) East (from New York City - Midtown Tunnel) to   EXIT 62  : Nicholls Road (county road 97) Take Nicholls Road (CR 97)   NORTH  toward Stony Brook.
After 6.3 miles on Nicholls Road North you will come to Route 347  (Nesconset Highway)
Cross over Route 347 proceed 2.2 miles passing two traffic lights. The second light is the 1ST (south) entrance to the Stony Brook campus.   Pass this entrance.           DO NOT TURN!!    
The third traffic light    is   the MAIN  ENTRANCE   to the campus
Make this LEFT onto Shirley Kenny Drive. 
At the next  traffic light turn right onto Circle Road  
Make the next left onto John Toll Dr.  (maybe 50 yards from the traffic light).
The road curves slightly to the left.   After the grey wall  on the left you will see   three ramps/loading areas  next to one another.   pass all of these. On the left you will see a tall windowless brown brick extension of a building (looks rather like a fly loft).   Pull into the next loading dock on left  (immediately after the large windowless brown brick building segment close to the road). This is the Staller Center theatre loading dock.

Stony Brook is about a 2 hour drive from New York City in average conditions.
Absolute best case 1 hour, in rush hour maybe 4 hours or more.
