We really enjoyed seeing the Grant Park Symphony performance if Haydn and Debussy here when it was moved due to Lollapolozza. I particularly enjoyed being served in my seat. We paid extra for the reserved section and loved how well we could see the orchestra....More

We have had a subscription to the family series for the last 4 or 5 years. We enjoy the hour long shows with a variety of entertainers. Seats are reasonable and there's often a chance to hang out with the performers after the performance.

We saw the Shen Yun (Chinese dance) performance here. Our seats were stage left, about 20 rows back and we had a great view. The only way to get to any seats is via stairs instead of ramps, due to the steep grade of the...More
