The stage at The Annoyance is a unique place. Mick Napier and crew have created and nutrured a space wheer anything can happen, and often does.

“Fun times and you can have a beer/cocktail at your table”
Reviewed August 22, 2011

Always showing interesting and off the wall comedy/musical plays here. Small and cozy and they have a full bar. Arrive early to get one and you can take it to your table/seat. Have seen some really funny (and interesitng) plays here.

“Great theater”
Reviewed July 6, 2011

Great experience while here in Chicago. This is NOT near the theater district but rather "Uptown" (take the RedLine). We saw a great show about a guy who was in the army (I Joined The Army for 5 Years and All I Got Was This Lousy Play). We took our kids (older) but it really is a place more for adults. They have a matinee on weekends for families (we didn't attend). This is a really cool, creative theater and we'd love to go back to see some of their other shows. Reasonably priced shows ($10-$15/ticket).
