#2 in my favorite venues in Chicago! I have been in PIT seats for many shows and can't say enough! The Loge is my other favorite spot! What a beautiful theatre from the moment you walk in to the view from your seats! The acoustics's are 2nd to none! I have never ever experience a bad sounding show at The Chicago Theatre! My VIP Concierge Service pumps a lot of people through this venue and not one has ever had a complaint! The Chicago Theatre is so close to so many great restaurants ...view moreall within walking distance! The top shows seem to always book here which says a lot!view less

- General Info:
- Chicago's breath-taking National Landmark Theatre hosts concerts, comedians, theatrical productions and special events every year. The 3,600 seat auditorium is seven stories high, and the vertical "C-H-I-C-A-G-O," sign is one of the few such signs in existence today. A symbol of State Street and Chicago, the marquee is a landmark in itself, as is the Wurlitzer pipe organ. Patrons can also go behind-the-scenes on their educational venue tour, which runs a few times a week.
This is the only theatre I know of in Chicago that closes its box office on weekends unless there is a show, making it virtually impossible to buy tickets in person unless there is a show that night. This forces customers to use ticketmaster to purchase tickets and get charged up to 20% extra. It's as though they don't WANT customers to buy tickets in person. Why can't they take a hint from Broadway in Boston, which makes it so easy to use the box offices that it's hard to avoid? B...view moreroadway in Boston sells tickets to all shows at all theatres, open Tues-Sun, etc. Buying tickets for Chicago Theatre shows is frustrating and unnecessarily expensive. And I haven't even seen a show there yet! Just got through the ticket-buying phase, but wanted to share my experience.view less
