We loved it!! Hip hop witty Othello! Excellent entertainment, we enjoyed the theatre, the writing was creative and the guys were brilliant! A friend recommended it and we were so happy we were able to catch it the last week it's showing in Chicago! Highly recommend if are in town this week!

Great little 200 seat theatre at the end of Navy Pier.

We reserved two seats for our daughter and myself the day before a show. The theatre was filled with school field trips. We must have been given priority seats because we weren't with a group and were paying full price. They positioned us in seats A3, A4. We could've touched the performers. There truly must be no bad seats here though so no worries.

The musical was great. It follows the same movie storyline but has all new songs! What a treat!

Great cast on the days we were there, some very funny shows. Seemed to attract many watchers for their daily shows.

We always ride the famous Ferris wheel, but were somewhat disappointed; we entered a cabin, and periodic movement (as other cars were filled) was slow and gradual. What happened to "My Kind of Town" Sinatra audio? And ride was over too soon.

Loved it! I go to various festivals and theaters loyally watching the Bard. This theatre shows a variety of the plays with distinct approaches. Lovely venue. Top level has amazing panoramic views or the skyline and ships on the lake. Small pub on second floor for a decent brew. Culture and fun together.
