When people hear "dinner theater," they may beg to do anything else. But Chicago is home to some hilarious interactive shows that, yes, feature meals—but more importantly, highlight the fun factor. Eye rolls are replaced with gut-busting laughs, and you won’t want the fun to end. Grab a date or a group of friends for a memorable night at these Chicago shows.

The Last DefenderYou may have heard of those experiences in Chicago where you get locked in a room with people and you have to find your way out in an hour. You may be thinking "Umm... locked in a room with people I DON'T KNOW for an hour and I can't get out? No thanks. Biyeeee!" I get it, especially if they're scary ones with zombies, or you're with someone who is just the worst. However, The House Theatre of Chicago has come up with such a cool and unique escape-type room experience that I think even the biggest doubters will have a blast.
