We are regular theater goers- but recently mostly to Broadway, West End and a couple of downtown Chicago theaters. This tiny (less than 100 seats) theater reminded us more of the great summer theater productions we used to go to at nearby Northwestern University –indeed is was founded by a group from Northwestern. The theater is in an old former... More

Monstrous Regiment, the novel from fantasy writer Terry Pratchett's Discworld, is now playing and is probably sold out. Lifelines writers, literary adaptors and actors are the best in the world. If you love theater, subscribe to Lifeline. It is a small theater, so act... More

My wife and I were just there to see a Tale of Two Cities. Excellent performance by all actors involved, try to make this show before it ends. Easy to miss this theater since it is down the alley but very unique inside. The narrow theater has about 100 seats and all have a good view. We loved our experience... More

Saw their production of The Killer Angels; OUTSTANDING from top to bottom! We'll start with the support staff. My wife uses a wheel chair and from making special parking available to the theater manager (A delightful young lady named "Mo") giving us a heads up as to how we should position the chair to see the actors as they move...

This will be our 3rd season subscribing to Lifeline! We really like Lifeline Theatre a lot. Every production is cleverly done, how they work in the props, the music. The costumes are fantastic. I love how imaginative they are. Can't wait to see how each show is done. I'm totally sold on it, the stories are original, not Disney. I... More
