Reviewed 16 July 2014

This is a hidden gem in Chicago! Affordable and entertaining Theater. I'm not a big Shakespeare lover but love going here and experiencing their take on Shakespeare. Both Theaters located here are small enough that every seat is great.

“Always a Hit”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Shows are always unique and interesting. There are no bad seats. So take whatever is available and be prepared for a memorable night. There is special parking for Theatre goers.

“nice place”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

We booked a tour by boot and enjoyed the view from the Lake Michigan to Downtown Chicago.
During our visit, the Navy Pier was renovating. It will be a very attractiv place in a few years.

“Warrior Show was Definitely Worth the Money”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Don't miss the show! Everybody in our group ranging from 11- 44 years old thoroughly enjoyed the show. Tickets are cheaper at the box office than at Ticket Master. We sat in the "cheap seats" and the view was still great. Also, once the show started, we were allowed to move to the empty seats that were in the premium price range.

“An English king in Chicago”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

A beautiful theatre to watch Henry V. That's us English folks watching an English play written by an English playwright about an English king, performed by Americans in Chicago...FABULOUS...It couldn't have been better.
