  • Once you get past this place is in Aurora and can be a little far for people who live in Chicago. It is great! They really try and make your experience one of a kind when you go to see a play. They have themed drinks, inexpensive food and snacks and always have some kind of back drop to take a memorable photo. The people are very nice and helpful. They offer souvenirs to purchase such as magnets or tshirts. Parking is available for free. You can even stick around after the show and go to the casino.
  • A beautiful theatre. Very large but has comfortable seating. We saw The Producers and the production value was phenomenal. The acting is great. The production elements are phenomenal (set, costumes, lights, sound). The tickets are excellently priced.
