We took our three year old grand daughter to see this one-hour musical, based on the clever book she had read. A college-age cast performed a fast paced story in rather unimaginative costumes and amateurish set design. While their singing voices were good, the wireless microphones were poor quality and muffled or distorted their words, making it difficult to understand... More

We had a good time laughing all throughout the performance. They were a saucy, audacious bunch and had us LOAO, a great time for GOT fans. Definitely not for kids or a wholesome family night but hey, that's what our couples night out is for. Well worth the ticket price. We'll be back again for other productions for sure.

If you're a Game of Thrones fan, this show is a must see! Crude laugh out loud humor, great atmosphere, good seats(we were allowed to move closer when the show started). Actors were fun, and the music was fun. Highly recommend this show, and this theater.

I have now seen 2 shows here and this is the best place. So small and intimate but layed out great. Not a bad seat in the house.

If you are a GOT fan and not averse to profanity and bawdy humor, you will enjoy this parody. The show runs about 2 hours with a 15 minute intermission to feed the meter(thank you!) and get a drink. Parking is tight in the area but we were able to park on the street for the 6pm show Saturday. There... More

We went to see the Games of Thrones parody. Plenty of tickets on the day of the show. It's a small theatre so I think all seats are good. You won't have a problem seeing the stage. There is really no parking space except for a few areas under the el ($15 cash) right near the entrance. We were running... More

Some of you will read this, unfortunately, after the current run of Game of Thrones has ended so I'll start with a general review of the theater. This is a small place so virtually every seat is good but just avoid the far stage right or left seats. We used Chicago's Hot Tix and got a crazy deal on the... More

We visited the Apollo theatre as we read it was theatre week in Chicago and in the spirit of connecting to many communities on our travels we thought we would venture the $20usd cab ride to the Apollo. The location is right under the train line and adds a sense of mystique to the area. We tried to have a... More

We showed up a little early after we dined nearby at the Prost restaurant. We found some seats and waiting in the warm foyer overlooking the street. The bar was closed when we got here but after the show got out it opened for business. Drinks are allowed in the theater so plan accordingly. About a half hour before showtime... More
