Thaddeus and Slocum

Chicago has been a major theater town for a long time, dating back to the early 20th century Vaudeville Era when dozens of theaters were scattered around the city, with the largest boasting seating for 2,000 patrons.  One of the most influential vaudeville theaters was the Majestic, (now called the PrivateBank Theatre on West Monroe) which serves as the lively setting for Thaddeus and Slocum: A Vaudeville Adventure.


Lookingglass Theatre, situated in the historic Water Tower building in the heart of Chicago's loop, has made a name for itself over the past quarter decade producing challenging work with a uniquely creative bent. And now, their most landmark production is making a much-anticipated return.
