A small intimate theatre. Cozy and comfortable. Convenient to restaurants and shops in Old Orchard. A perfect way to top off an evening.

Who knew! This theatre was great. Seats are nice size, not as cramped as some places. Venue has an almost intimate feel to it, views of stage are unobstructed throughout. Good sound. Only $6 to valet. Lobby entrance, flow of people a little awkward. Saw Linda Eder, beyond amazing!

With several theatres, a great location near public transit and lots of restaurants and a variety of shows ranging from drama and classical music to comedy to kids' shows, the North Shore Center is a huge asset to the Near North suburbs. Great acoustics, sight lines and reasonable prices round out the package. Parking is free and plentiful. It's not... More

We saw "You Can't Take It With You", and in addition to the show being a total hoot, the theater was more than acceptable. Most sight lines were very good, but I did have to change seats with my wife because she was seated next to a railing and it was right at eye-level. It was also very easy to... More

Great local venue. Any seat is good. Tickets are often discounted closer to the show. Shares space with Northlight, a small theater

To be honest, I find most concerts and performing arts centers uncomfortable and haphazardly planned. This is no exception. It's perfectly fine but somewhat cramped and not easy to get around. It looks like they were trying to save money in it's design and they succeeded. One can't imagine if they designed it with ease of access and a little... More

We've been to this theatre many times and have not been disappointed. It's always clean and comfortable. It's wheelchair and walker-accessible. All seats seem to have unobstructed views. There is ample free parking and a concession stand for intermission snacking. The box office is open a good number of hours, so you can swing by to pick up tickets, being... More
