“The quality of life.... a great play in a wonderful location”

Theatre on the Lake
Ranked #349 of 683 things to do in Chicago
Reviewed 8 August 2013

I bought tickets online the same day. The theatre was a little far from the centre of town, so I had to take a taxi to get there. The theatre itself was in a simple but beautiful building, and the stage was easy to see. The play was humourous and tragic, and the actors were good, and clearly well directed. The visit to the theatre was a high point during my visit to Chicago.

Located on the lakefront at Fullerton this theater is housed in an old field house and although it is indoors it is open to the outdoors. There is air circulation but no air conditioning. It's a unique Chicago experience. The plays offered are selected from among those produced the previous year across the city. Gives a chance to see something you might have missed. Great place to bring visitors.

Its not just a Simon and Garfunkel song, it can actually be experienced all the while watching some pretty good quality theatre while just a splash away from Lake Michigan in this timeless open air theatre. The admission is modest, and the seating close and reasonably comfortable, but the star is the waves and breezes as you take in a wide range of local theatre productions. It feels one of a kind and is always a fun Chicago thing to do...
