The theatre is gorgeous! The show, awesome! It was fun, fast moving and interactive. The time flew! The talent was unbelievable. The story line was so interesting. I highly recommend this show. You will not be disappointed.

“Beautiful theater”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

We recently visited the Oriental Theater to take in the Motown, the musical show. This is a very ornate, decorative and beautiful theater. Rich in history and thankfully its changed very little over the years. Hope it stays that way always. Modern isn't always equivalent to improved.

“Beautiful Theatre”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We recently went to see Motown the Musical in the Oriental Theatre in Chicago. It is a lovely theatre. We sat in the loge section and it was a very good section to see the musical. We enjoyed ourselves very much.
