This is a great place to go to see theater. Lobby is decorated very uniquely, restrooms are fairly plentiful. Seating has good sightlines. Performers come to lobby, after show, for photos, autographs, conversation. The entire Belmont area, from Clark, to this theater, is really neat,...More

High energy, feel good play. I saw it twice and enjoyed it the second time even more. Well casted, not to be missed. Good for all folks old and young. Theatre is pleasant but sometimes the waiting area is congested. Good seats in the show...More

Don't hesitate. Buddy Holly show filled on a Thursday night with a mix of young people, teens and aging baby boomers. All rose in unison at the end to applaud Zach Stevenson's rendition of Buddy Holly - he absolutely kills it on stage. The play...More

The theatre is set so every seat is a good seat. We saw the Buddy Holly Story and I could hear every word and see every movement. We valet parked our car because the theatre is in a crowded section of Lakeview.

About 4 blocks from the Belmost CTA stop, this theatre has several stages, and we saw 'The Civility of Albert Cashier'. The place has the feel of a real local community effort - friendly staff at the bar, plenty of comfortable seats in the auditorium...More

What a great surprise..... What a cohesive crew. They complimented each other well. The skits/songs were unique and hilarious. You don't stop laughing the entire time!!!! The venue is eclectic, clean and fun. This is a must see.

Last weekend I saw a performance of "The CivilliTy of Albert Cashier," and it was fantastic. The acting was excellent, it was well-written (book and music) and it was entertaining and emotional. I traveled 3 hours to see it, and it was well worth it.

My husband and I attended Changes: A David Bowie SciFi Saga performed by Chicago Tap Theater (CTT). The show was delightfully weird--I felt it encapsulated Bowie's creative persona to a T and the performers --both the dancers and the musicians-- were top notch. The theater...More
