Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do order tickets online: Like other shows in Chicago, Big Fish is only at the Oriental Theatre for a short time, so ensure you don't miss out on seeing it by getting your Big Fish tickets ahead of time.
  • Do go if you love musicals: This musical adaptation should be a treat for any lovers of musicals out there.
  • Don't forget to eat beforehand: Shows in Chicago can be lengthy, so its best to get something to eat beforehand at one of the many great dining options in the area.
