“Every time we've gone, it's been a great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

The quality of acting and productions is so high. If you can get tickets to Metamorphoses, don't miss it. One of our favorite theaters in Chicago.

“Theater at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

I am a theater addict and this company satisfies to the MAX. Their creative use of space in the theater alone is worth experiencing. Add to that the superb quality of the acting and this is a theater lover's dream. I have been a season subscriber for several years and will be again.

“Always creative and entertaining. Not your usual broadway style show.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great productions always take a very artistic approach that make you say "wow, that's cool". I saw "Peter Pan" as I've never seen the story portrayed in books or movies. Always a treat to see a show here.

“Innovative, unique and entertaining interpretation of this works by Ovid”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

This was truly a unique experience. The use of the water pool was remarkable and stunning.
The actors were outstanding in their difficult portrayals of these short stories by Ovid.
I would highly recommend this play to the most avid readers of the classic or anyone interested in a really different kind of theartre.

“Innovative theatre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

I was here in June to see "Eastland": terrific play; haunting music; stunningly staged & performed by an excellent ensemble cast. -- In the Water Tower building, an historic place in itself. Missed "Metamorphoses" this time, but must come back soon.
