When the curtains rise, variety hits the stage big time in Chicago. Classic theaters sparkle with thousands of bright lights gleaming in the night and music, dancing and laughter come from within. Is this Broadway? Even better, it's Broadway In Chicago and it's guaranteed to get you humming a favorite tune after every performance.
Broadway In Chicago is a collective of theaters located in and around the Loop that put on unforgettable productions all year long. Be dazzled by everything from world premieres and Tony Award® winners, to long-running musical mega hits like Rent, Rodger and Hammerstein's The King and I and The Phantom of the Opera. All-time family-favorites abound as does sophisticated entertainment for adults.
Clustered throughout our downtown Theater District, you'll find venues like the Cadillac Palace, the Oriental Theatre, the PrivateBank Theatre, and the opulent, perfectly-acoustical Auditorium Theatre, designed by famed American architect Louis Sullivan. And the newest addition to the family, The Broadway Playhouse offers compelling theater in an intimate setting.
For an added adventure, go behind-the-scenes on a Theatre Tour offered Saturday mornings at 11 a.m. You'll see the glamour from behind the curtain and find out what makes those special effects so special. And there are many excellent dining spots to choose from scattered throughout the downtown area, so you can easily catch dinner and a show on the nights you're in town.
