Without a doubt, Chicago theatre tickets are completely worth it.


Historic theatres of Chicago hosting the best theatre events in Chicago

The much revered CIBC Theatre, previously known as the Majestic Theatre opened in 1906 and went on to become Chicago’s first million-dollar-plus exquisite venue. Standing strong against the Depression years, this theatre hosts truly remarkable shows. The Broadway in Chicago satiates the entertainment-thirsty millennials through five spawning theatres- the Ford Center for the Performing Arts Oriental Theatre, Bank of America Theatre, Cadillac Palace Theatre, Auditorium of Roosevelt University, and Broadway Playhouse at the Water Tower Place. The Cadillac Palace Theatre was founded in 1926 as a breathtaking venue to host commendable plays of all times. Chicago’s theatre has evolved with time to now include both traditional and contemporary improvisational theatre and boasts of renowned theatre groups such as The Second City and the I.O. The League of Chicago-Gala is a lively event that brings forth the association of the members of Chicago theatre to raise funds for supporting the 240 member strong theatre companies in the League theatres. Several musicals in Chicago and other theatre events in Chicago include the famous Hamilton, A Christmas Carol, The Book of Mormon, Secrets, and Illusions, and much more. Grab your Chicago theatre tickets right now.
