We love the Paramount Theatre. We do the Broadway show plus several other shows and it beats having to go to Chicago, The theatre productions are as good or better than any we have seen in NYC, Chicago or even London. The director of the Paramount has done an excellent job.

Have attended numerous performances throughout the past 20 years. Great variety of entertainment and the Broadway shows of recent years have bee spectacular. No need to go to Chicago when we have this gem of a theater in our own back yard.

Every year the performances get better than the year before. How is that possible? From the scenery, costumes, voices, dancing, orchestra, choice of musicals, ticket office staff, directors, theatre management, venue and etc. is truly the best! Thank you, Aurora.

I've been to the Paramount Theater twice now, and I have to say that I was very impressed. The theater is beautiful! And since we live in Aurora, it's so much more convenient to see a play here than travel downtown Chicago. I wasn't sure if the quality of the performance would be close the plays I've seen in the...

The Paramount is the best entertainment decision we have ever made. Our Broadway subscription is outstanding in many ways. First and foremost the productions are top notch and compare and often surpass Chicago productions. If you are skeptical just check out the reviews. Add to this a gorgeous facility, friendly and very helpful staff, extremely easy parking, and prices that... More

We have been subscription members for several years now and all the shows we have seen have been downtown Chicago / Broadway caliber productions. If you are a theater goer, this is well worth the investment.
