Chicago is noted as a theater lover's paradise, and Goodman Theatre supplies a prime example of why with the enthralling 4-star satire Gloria (playing now through February 19).

A Disappearing Number

Chicago is known for storefront theaters—it's kind of our signature.

Plus, ticket prices are much less expensive than the big shows, and they're even cheaper with upoming Chicago Theatre Week (February 9–19) discounts.
