The Chicago Theatre

The Chicago Theatre

The grandeur of The Chicago Theatre often leaves its visitors breathless. The elegant lobby, majestic staircase and beautiful auditorium complete with murals above the stage and on the ceiling are components of an amazing building called “the Wonder Theatre of the World” when it opened on October 26, 1921. The 3,600 seat auditorium is seven stories high, more than one half of a city block wide, and nearly as long. The vertical sign “C-H-I-C-A-G-O,” at nearly six stories high, is one of the few such signs in existence today. A symbol of State Street and Chicago, the sign and marquee are landmarks in themselves, as is the 29-rank Wurlitzer theatre pipe organ. During its first 40 years, The Chicago Theatre presented the best in live and film entertainment, including John Phillip Sousa, Duke Ellington, Jack Benny, and Benny Goodman. In recent years, an array of the entertainment world’s brightest stars and greatest productions have graced the stage, including Allman Brothers Band, Arcade Fire, Blues Traveler, Kelly Clarkson, Harry Connick Jr, Ellen DeGeneres, Aretha Franklin, Kathy Griffin, Gipsy Kings, Indigo Girls, Alicia Keys, David Letterman, Lyle Lovett, Oasis, Dolly Parton, Prince, Diana Ross, Van Morrison, Widespread Panic and Robin Williams.

The Courtyard Theater at Chicago Shakespeare Theater

The Courtyard Theater at Chicago Shakespeare Theater

Chicago Shakespeare Theater serves as the cultural anchor of historic Navy Pier on downtown Chicago’s lakefront. Sir Peter Hall, Founder of Great Britain’s Royal Shakespeare Company, calls it “one of the best, if not the best, Shakespeare spaces in the world.” The 500-seat Jentes Family Courtyard Theater was inspired by theaters in early modern England, and evokes the design of Shakespeare’s Globe and the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Swan Theatre. The three seating levels — Main Floor, Dress Circle and Gallery — wrap around the thrust stage, fostering an intimate, immediate relationship between actors and audience.
