    This was a perfect performance to take my teen and tween to as part of our Chicago getaway. It is close to the Belmont stop on the Red Line and we easily walked the theater.
    The kids were thoroughly entertained and we all laughed, clapped and really enjoyed ourselves! There is audience participation and my oldest was asked to take part which was a really cool experience. Even without that fun extra, we still would give this 5 stars.
    Know they are serious about Covid precautions and at the time of this writing they do require proof of vaccination and masks.
    Try GroupOn for special ticket prices which is where I bought ours.

    This was a perfect evening for me and my boyfriend. We're both literature nerds, but I'm confident this would have been a fantastic night regardless. The performers are so charismatic and charming. The audience participation (I raced against a performer to chug a beer) adds another layer of fun onto an already great show. I highly recommend this show.

    Located smack in the middle of the Boystown neighborhood of Chicago, Trickery Chicago was an awesome off-the-beaten-path find! This show is NOT for kids! We went with another couple, we were easily the oldest in attendance. The crowd was predominantly 20-somethings, maybe early 30's, which was fine. It made the atmosphere fun!

    The venue itself is easily missed, just one door located amongst larger establishments. But once inside the ambiance and decor create a mystical, magical feel. Take lots of selfies and photos inside! There are maybe 25-30 seats total in the small theater, so if you're thinking of going on a weekend, make a commitment! Our magician was entertaining and cheeky, lots of "inside jokes". While the magic isn't David Copperfield level, it's also much better than expected and the close proximity to the stage (there are no bad seats) makes it even better. The experience is very audience interactive, which made it great!

    Unknown to us, you can bring your own alcohol in. The aforementioned 20-somethings must have been in the know, as there were cases of White Claw, Beer and a gallon of Vokda being passed around. Apparently this is encouraged, which is 180 degrees opposite of what you'll mostly find for magic or comedy shows in Chicago, a number of which have a 2 drink minimum.

    PRO TIP: Eat at Wood restaurant just a couple of blocks south, then walk to the show.

    This tour was fascinating! Our guide was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He peppered the information with tidbits of historical anecdotes as well as reviewing the overall history of the theater. Would definitely recommend!
