I love the intimate setting of the Lookingglass theater. We saw In the Garden, a Darwinian Love Story and were thoroughly enthralled with the interesting themes of Christianity and Darwinism
along with the dynamics of the Darwin marriage. The script was very well done and the actors
were excellent. We left the theater discussing the play and the themes. A great evening of
theater. Looking forward to their next production.

What a marvelous setting...theatre tucked inside an old water tower building. We had front row seats in the front facing section by the stage. For my first lookingglass experience, I loved it. We saw "In the Garden" which had really interesting themes about Christianity and Darwinism. There's a bar available before the show and during intermission. The room where the show is held is cozy and intimate enough you really feel like you're on stage. It's a wonderful venue I would recommend to city dwellers and Chicago visitors alike.

An interesting theater that tends to show unusual performances. We have seen a few different types of productions and the seating is within a good range. Usually easy to get tickets and a student discount is often available

We saw "In The Garden" - a Darwinian Love Story which was much better than the title would suggest. The production was terrific and all the seats were comfortable and had a good view of the stage. We booked through "Hot Tix" (discounted ticket prices) which we would recommend doing. Try to see a show at this terrific venue which is adjacent to the old Water Tower.
