I am never disappointed in the quality of the productions the Lookingglass Theater Company choose to perform. I always leave thinking what a great experience I just had....
For innovative and intimate theater in a striking setting, the Lookingglass Theatre is a great choice. We saw Metamorphosis when they revived it last year and were blown away.
I saw a production of North China Lover and was familiar with the work - a narrator, the woman of the story, took us back to her youth and made lucid commentary throughout which was critical for the success of the play. Since this was my first time there I had an eagle eye for friendliness and welcome and both... More
I have never been to such an unusual site for a play but enjoyed an excellent evening watching a performance of the North China Lover. Everyone was very friendly and the play was well acted. The theatre is convenient to the centre of town and you can obtain cheaper tickets from the Chicago Information Centre which is located nearby.
Lookingglass offers one of the most visually stunning theatrical paintings you'll ever experience. Great shows, creatively and loving staged and so superbly acted. It's always a feast for the senses. I've been a subscriber for many seasons and cannot get enough. Plus, they are housed in the terrific Water Tower Pumping Station that houses the water system for this area... More

Not regular theatre goers, we decided to go to a preview session of The North China Lover to tick another bucket list on our visit to Chicago. The actual theatre is an intimate venue in the old Water Works building on Michigan Ave "magnificent mile". Whilst the acting and stage production was competent enough...we weren't great fans of the play... More
The play was clever and it was interesting to see how all of the characters connected throughout the plot. The theater experience is one-of-a-kind as you are literally feet if not inches from the action!
I've been coming back to this theatre since I was little and still love it. My most recent experience was the play "Big Lake, Big City" There wasn't a dull moment, I was laughing throughout the whole performance. All the different sets that changed before my eyes where so wonderfully created. I have always loved the productions that go on... More
This is a fun small venue - don't miss this treasure when you visit Chicago. The theater is in the round so you almost feel like you are a part of the action. It's located in the Old Water Tower right on Miracle Mile.
