Chorus Line
May 2019 • Couples
We saw The Chorus Line on a rare warm Saturday night in May. The show is a complete sell out and we snagged two seats in back row (3) in the balcony. Loved the show but it was quite warm up there!! Need to work on improving the circulation.

Interesting Performance Space
Dec 2018 • Family
We came here for a musical theater performance but it looks like they do much more here.

We were in a fairly large black box theater that included a balcony. We had front row seats in the balcony and the view was slightly obstructed by the railing. I usually prefer balcony seats but I would skip them here.

The box office was very nice and though one of our party was late they held his ticket with his name so he could join us when he arrived.

Gypsy was great
Nov 2018 • Family
It was our first time at the Ruth Page. The theater is small so the seats are all close to the stage. We had seats in G and C. The seats in C were very loud! The performers had microphones and the orchestra was over 10 pieces. It was very loud for such a small space. The seats were comfortable. The concession stand did not sell alcohol.

The Shaw Theater is one of the best small theaters in Chicago - try to make a Jeeves Performance
Feb 2018 • Friends
I love the performances in the Shaw Theater located here. The theater provides a small intimate experience - all seats have excellent sight lines (2-300 seats). The Shaw theater group performs here throughout the year and they are incredibly talented. We recently attended "Jeeves in Bloom" - a hilarious British comedy. Tickets are reasonably priced ($45 or less) an you can valet park at the theater for $15.

The Shaw Theater group does "dramatic readings" so it is not quite a play. They wear costumes and act out their parts but all actors are on the stage throughout the performance. The only difference I noticed was there is no stage set. It is actually easier to hear the performers because they are always facing you.

They have dance and music performances in addition to the Shaw Theater group performances.

We saw a Jeeves performance last year and loved it so much we came back.

Nice venue
Nov 2017 • Couples
The theater now hosts a variety of companies. We especially like the staged readings performed by ShawChicago. Porchlight Theater had a great performance of Billy Elliott too. The theater is small with about a dozen rows plus a small balcony. Not a bad seat in the house.
