Loved this theater, saw Spamilton and it was amazing!

We saw Spamilton and thought it was hysterical, entertaining, and the actors were extremely talented! It didn't feel mean spirited at all and the whole thing was done really well... read more

We saw Spamilton and thought it was hysterical, entertaining, and the actors were extremely talented! It didn't feel mean spirited at all and the whole thing was done really well. I would recommend it to anyone who knows anything about Hamilton. If you don't know about Hamilton, you won't get it/think it's funny. This was honestly almost as entertaining as... More

One man (nun actually) performance and it was just like my grade school classroom at St. Columba in Louisville, Ky.! Sister was so funny, authentic and informative to boot. If you attended a Catholic school growing up you will enjoy this show. If your spouse or significant other did not, they will not get it. (Remember those pagen babies?)

So fun! Our teen was very skeptical that she would like this show but she was pleasantly surprised. My husband got in "trouble" and my daughter sang for the audience. The prizes must have come from Catholic thrift shops and some Catholic version of Oriental Trading. You don't have to be Catholic to have fun here.

Interesting mix of theatre - science- and magic. Ricardo is both a pediatrician and magician. the stage is a nice transformation of a study with multiple props that become a part of the show. Most of the tricks are of the mind reading sort using members of the audience and most are interesting and border on fascinating. He is a... More

I've been reading the reviews for Christmas Bingo and the Regular Bingo show for about 2 years and finally booked tickets for the "show". The show is held on the 2nd floor of the Royal George Theater. As you walk down the hallway, they have added props to imitate a real Catholic school. The play is held in a very... More

If you want, for whatever reason, an early show, catch the 5pm edition of Late Night Catechism, a show that has been running in Chicago for over 20 years. Catholics will not be offended, if you have a decent sense of humor. My Catholic wife and I laughed all through the show as did the 75 or so folks who... More

We went here to see Late Night Catechism. The room for our show was properly decorated for the event, and felt as if we were in the setting. "Sister" did an excellent job of teaching the class, and made for a fun outing. We took my mother here for her birthday, and had a great time. We've recommended the show... More

Went to see Bible Bingo and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. I wasn't sure what to expect, not being Catholic, (yes there were a few of us there), but the interaction and humor was very entertaining for all.

Late Night Catechism is very funny. A nun conducts class...and you the audience is the class. If you are Catholic or familiar with Catholic Schools, you will certainly enjoy this. It is interactive with the audience. I had to remove my arm around my girlfriend...or take heat!
