My husband and I saw Les Miserables in October. We paid up for the Broadway in Chicago Suite Service, which includes drinks and canapes before and during the show. It also has separate restrooms, which alone was worth the upgrade. During intermission, queues for the regular restrooms were very long, and we were thankful for the separate restrooms in the suite. The suite also offered some delicious chocolate cakes during intermission.

The theatre itself is very beautiful with good acoustics, and there are always good productions from Broadway. We would not hesitate to come back if another interesting show comes up.

What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. We saw Beautiful in this gorgeous theatre. We sat on floor level stage left and had great views. The show and cast were amazing. Can't say enough about the music! Ushers were pleasant and helpful!

My wife and I recently saw Beautiful and previously saw Wicked in this theater. The theater has a nice size bar area and serves alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks along with snacks you can take inside. The seats aren’t terribly big but I was comfortable at 5’11”. They’re no narrower than any other theater seats. The views are great. The stage can be cut off if you sit too much to one side. The theater is absolutely beautiful. I love coming here.

One of several beautiful theatre's in Chicago - the Cadillac Palace is breathtaking. It will bring you back to the days when only the wealthy could afford to enjoy such an experience. The theatre has amazing acoustics and not a bad seat in the house. You won't be disappointed - guaranteed.

Two friends and I went to this theater to see the musical, "Beautiful". The theater is very lovely inside and reflects the charm of when it was built in the 1920's. The acoustics were also very good.
