  • From what I could tell, every seat is good - allowing you to see everything on stage. Wasn't prepared for the cost of the snacks - a bit pricey in my opinion. However the free parking in the evening was great! Ticket price was also good. Would definitely recommend.
  • The theater was great, it's on the University of Chicago campus. There were no bad seats, you can see the stage well from every angle. There is a bar, drinks from water to liquor were sold. The performance started on time. The staff was very gracious. Parking was free in the parking garage next door for the evening performance. I would definitely go to this theater again.
