I love this theatre so much. It is old and classic and wonderful. It has such a good vibe. It's a good venue for live performances, and really pretty much anything. The seating is moderately comfortable, enough so to get you through an evening/event. There really isn't a bad seat, even if you're in the back. The decor has an older feel, which I find to be lovely. To me, it's one of the best in the city, if not the best. It's conveniently located and there is a bus stop that lets you off right across the street.
The Chicago theater is absolutely beautiful! I had seats a bit higher up and still had a great view of the stage! They serve alcohol which is always a plus! The men's bathroom was very clean as well. The ornate detailing of the ceiling is a treat in of itself. I would highly recommend seeing a show here. Kathleen Madigan was awesome!
