My husband and I and another couple went to see the performance of "the Tempest." It was beautifully done. This is a small black-box-type theater. We have been there before and have enjoyed other productions. Good entertainment at a reasonable price.

Nice to be able to see young theater perform at a very reasonable price. I miss the local theaters of yester years and Valparaiso has two.

I have been the quite a few plays at the Chicago street theatre. Great place to see a show. The seats are comfortable. There is plenty of leg room. Highly recommend.

Chicago Street Theatre is a real gem. I've attended several performances there and each was a very professional, five-star production. The theatre is tiny, so seating is very limited. Make your reservations early. The first few rows of seats are so close to the stage,...More

There is a parking lot across from the theater, but we have never had a problem parking right on the street. There is also parking on the main street downtown, and it is only a couple of blocks from the theater. There are... More
