Knew all the lyrics! What a wonderful musical & at the Paramount, there is not a bad seat in the house. Great local talent. They serve Two Bros which is an added plus!

The Paramount Theatre Broadway Series, is by far, the best entertainment value in the Chicago Burbs. Outstanding performances and superb acting and music. They do need to upgrade the seats - very uncomfortable.

This is a great theater! I have only seen a couple of shows here, but the quality of the shows was terrific and rivals that of downtown Chicago. The theater doesn't seem to have any really bad seats to see your show.

This is an excellent venue! This was the location of my son and daughter-in-law's wedding. The venue is a restored Art Deco styled movie theater used now for theatrical productions, performances and concerts. It is also used to host events and weddings. Kelsey, the event...More

I grew up in NY and the caliber of talent is amazing and for the price, you can't beat it. Broadway has nothing that the Paramount cant offer. I highly recommend the Broadway Series.

Great cast, fantastic sound, could hear every word. Wish more theatre had as big of a live pit orchestra as the Paramount.

Went this week to see Jesus Christ Super Star. Talent was all there but the sound system made it difficult to hear the voices clearly. Perhaps other seats would have been better.

A friend gave us tickets to see Jesus Christ Superstar last Friday. The venue is awesome. The cast and performance were broadway worthy. Cost is very affordable for individual shows or for season membership. Also convenient local restaurants for before or after show.
