I don't go downtown much because I like driving, but I don't like driving downtown. So this was my first trip to the Harris Theater, to see Jay and Silent Bob Get Old. I love their podcast and I've wanted to see it live and when I heard they were coming to Chicago, I couldn't pass up the opportunity. Parking was a little difficult to find, but I eventually found underground parking near the theater. Parking was $16 validated, which I hear isn't too bad for downtown. Parking in enclosed spaces is always fun when you have a nice exhaust rumble coming from your car :) The auditorium was nice and clean and although the seating is a little crowded, how else are you going to get 1000+ people packed in? There were a lot of people around to help you get where you needed to go, which was nice because I didn't know where I was going. My biggest gripe about the theater was that they don't have a lot of food options. Luckily, I was early enough so that I walked a couple blocks and got food before the show. Overall, not a bad place and I hope they can offer more in terms of food.
One of the best ways to see what is wonderful about Chicago! Who says Shakespeare is outdated and boring? This amazing group creates world-class productions of Shakespeare's plays set in different times in history. Using the exact words from his plays, it is just the settings that change, so we see that indeed these great words are timeless!
I guess if you're looking for a great meal and wonderful show i would recommend TOMMY GUN'S GARAGE. It's 3 hours packed with fun and excitment. Great place to visit and the greatest part is that it's not a tourist trap!!!!!!
The Chicago Theatre has concerts, plays, musicals, comedy shows, etc. that take place throughout the year so there is always something to see here. The theatre is very nice which is a plus
See a show here and be sure to go downstairs to see the shockingly gorgeous rest rooms! Sadly the crowds have destroyed much of the ornamentation, but so much remains. Just so pretty!
Imagination Theater is a fantastic educational theater! Their interactive programs travel directly to schools and teach age appropriate lessons using theater and and discussion.
This is a huge and nice looking theatre. There are usually different plays and musicals that occur here. Some months back, The Color Purple was shown at this theatre.
This is a great place to go. I always have fun here. The building is always clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. You can usually find good parking.
Have seen a few productions there. Really not a bad place in the house. The decor is cool and the sound is even better. Cannot go wrong here
We have been there four times. Each time they outdo themselves with creative productions.
