Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do buy first-row balcony seats.  Rather than getting tickets to be directly by the stage, shell out a few more dollars for these balcony seats that will allow you to see the stage even when people stand up, get drinks at the bar near the balcony, and enjoy listening at a volume that is much easier on the ears than what you'd experience right by the stage monitors.
  • Do use the bathroom DURING the show.  The lines for the restrooms are long during intermissions.  You can save yourself lots of waiting time by visiting the bathroom while the show is playing.
  • Don't bring outside food or beverages.  The concession stand offers plenty of refreshing and delicious options.  There are usually several concession areas open so lines are short!
  • Don't miss the guided tour.  The shows are great here, but the art, architecture, and decor, as well as the story behind the theater are amazing as well.  Learn fascinating information about this Chicago landmark, and enjoy dedicating time to photographing and admiring the theater.
