We really enjoyed seeing the Grant Park Symphony performance if Haydn and Debussy here when it was moved due to Lollapolozza. I particularly enjoyed being served in my seat. We paid extra for the reserved section and loved how well we could see the orchestra....More

We have had a subscription to the family series for the last 4 or 5 years. We enjoy the hour long shows with a variety of entertainers. Seats are reasonable and there's often a chance to hang out with the performers after the performance.

The very modern Harris Theater is in Millennium Park in Chicago. We saw an opera there in October 2017. The theater's acoustics are excellent: we could hear the singers and orchestra very well from the upper balcony where our seats were. The performance was outstanding...More

We saw the Shen Yun (Chinese dance) performance here. Our seats were stage left, about 20 rows back and we had a great view. The only way to get to any seats is via stairs instead of ramps, due to the steep grade of the...More

We attended Music of the Baroque here...great seats (all seemed quite good) and great sound. The theater itself is rather unattractive, with colored fluorescent lights in the lobby area and a rather industrial feel. The location is great, though, with easy parking, and the theater...More

Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a

shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
