Service was marvelous. Seats are comfortable with a great view of the stage. Show (shrek) was fabulous! The actors afterwards were kind and gracious. Hoping to visit again and again!

We loved seeing Shrek at the Shakespeare Theater on Navy Pier. Frankly, we thought for only $25, we'd give it a try, but weren't expecting much :) Well much to our surprise, it was amazing -- high quality. The props, stage, costumes were professional and the actors, singing and band were incredible!!! The theater seating is in a U shape around the stage. We sat in the balcony on the right side and I was worried that we wouldn't be able to view much of the production, but we saw everything. For once the theater wasn't too chilly for me and the seats were also comfortable. If I'm ever in Chicago again, I would definitely consider going to the Shakespeare Theater.

If you are in Chicago, see a play here. Upstairs or downstairs performances are world class, whether or not it's Shakespeare or not. I have seen 3, and I am always pleased and sufficiently entertained. Validated parking and discount available. See their website.

The theater has nice productions, and the setting on the pier is convenient and fun. You can grab dinner on the pier, too, for a relaxing evening.
