The Oriental is in the Theater district within the loop and if you come at night it's neon billboard looms quite beautifully in the cold night. The shows rotate quite often and are essentially broadway follow-ups which is not that interesting on my book but if it takes your fancy you should def come around.

Any show is great here, there is so much history at this theatre! And Garrett's popcorn on your way is a must!

I saw Wicked at this theatre. The theatre is beautiful. It is like you stepped back in time. It is very elegant. We got last minute tickets and sat in the front row which isn't the best for some of the special effects but I must say I enjoyed being that close so I could really see their faces etc.... More

Great Show, went last spring. If it's still playing go see it. The theater is beautiful inside, don't know the history but I loved the interior of the place.

Great show. My husband went for our anniversary and loved this venue and the show was impressive. Easy walk from our downtown hotel. Nearby shopping and restaurants.

It is an amazing experience to just step into the lobby and your eye just cannot escape the grandeur which exists even today. It is extremely ornamental without being gaudy.

We saw Motown sitting on the front row. Usually sitting on the front rows is a bad idea. Not in this theatre. All seats are good. Great location downtown from hotels and great restaurants. We would go back.
