The Magic Parlour
#1 of 197 Concerts & Shows in Chicago
The venue is perfect because it feels so intimate and personal - everyone is involved and they get to engage with an accomplished entertainer "closer than being in the front row" of a theater with a stage.
We have seen his dramatic role as Harry Houdini in the House Theatre of Chicago's stellar production of Death and Harry Houdini, twice over the years, as longtime subscribers to the innovative House Theatre.

Lyric Opera of Chicago
#7 of 197 Concerts & Shows in Chicago
Popular shows sometimes occupy the stage: last year’s My Fair Lady was as charming as it was big, while the current Jesus Christ Superstar was designed for outdoor venues and can only play a few spots in the US.
From the main floor, near the orchestra pit, turn around to gaze at the gorgeous theater and balconies (selfie stop!).

Upon our return back to the Lyric Opera House area to attend the show, we were a few minutes early so ducked into Rivers Restaurant right near the theater for a drink before the show.
