Plunked in what was the middle of nowhere at the time it was built, the Star Plaza is basically the center of Merrillville, IN. Booking top name talent in a very nicely maintained hotel complex in a small town like Merrillville would seem unlikely. But the Star Plaza has done it for many years. The theater is comfy with every... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the Grass Roots, the Buckinghams, and Herman's Hermits. Peter Noone still rocks at 66!

I have been to Star Plaza several times and have to say I wish it weren't so far from us so we could attend concerts there more often. Merrillville is on a different time than us so we have to get a hotel for afterwards. But it is so worth it. Very nice venue. Just beautiful. I have never had... More

First time to this venue. The ushers were very friendly. Our seats were broken and we couldn't see the stage, so the manager let us move in the balcony and sit anywhere we wanted (that was open). It worked out well. My only "complaint" would be that the sight lines are not great on the floor level, especially from the... More

Still a great place to see a show. Eat at Maloney's prior to or after the show for some good Irish food.

Some friends and I went to see Theresa Caputo and this was a perfect venue for it! No matter where you sat, you could see the stage. And we loved the Radisson being attached to it, made for a very lovely mini-girls trip away! We would definitely come back here!

Smaller venue, not a bad seat in the house. The hotel rates and packages are pricey, but the tickets to see a show are affordable. The bars inside are very pricey, as one would expect.
