One of the most beautiful theatre. A must see in person. I try to find something to see there just so I can look around and the architecture.

A truly beautiful theatre that is intimate and a great place to see any type of show from concerts to stand up comedians and everything in between.

The only outstanding architectural open venue is this amazing theater, unfortunately located in downtown Joliet. It offers an intimate setting and beautiful accoustics for any performance and the amazing details of the entire theater are a sight to behold. Even the changing of the light bulbs in the huge chandelier is an event here. It is also available for meetings and weddings.

Every seat is good, staff is knowledgeable and courteous and parking is reasonable and semi convenient. There are only a couple of dining choices downtown, not much better on the West side so it's better to plan ahead for meal options if you are planning an entire evening out.

I have been here many times. I have seen the ballet, comedians, musicians, plays....
The architecture of the building is incredible and worth going to the theatre alone. Like others have said, there is not a bad seat in the house.
