Nothing here is typical theater. The cast and director put heart and soul into every play, every single performance. Nothing is too much trouble for this ensemble .. you will not be disappointed. Instead, you are sure to leave intrigued, impressed and wondering how they did that! We saw "Eastland" this past summer and it blew us away. The set, actors, music - everything original, as is all of their work.

Most productions incorporate some type of acrobatics or a physical theater component, and they do it well! The theater is located within The Chicago Water Pumping Station on The Magnificent Mile in the heart of the tourist area. Lots of eateries around it and a beautiful area of the city. GO - don't hesitate, even if you have no clue what the play is beforehand. You are sure to have a memorable experience at Lookingglass Theatre.

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.

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.

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.
