A Chicago classic. Popular for shows and large events. It isn't the most comfortable theater but it is an icon.

4 stars for the theater itself. Nice setting, and seats are alright.

Review for Red Bull Flying Bach - DO NOT WATCH.

Expectations were really high when you first enter the venue. They had some dancers portrayed as dancing statues to a DJ and violinist. The beat was perfectly EDC but the violin melody was just a perfect blend of the classical to the beat. Think Lindsay Sterling.

We are told to get seated and a pianist and harpsichordist each play a Bach piece until the dancers come out. The music selection isn't that great. It's not even really modernized?

After a couple sets, a girl comes out dancing ballet. Definitely straight classical music
Theres a vague storyline where she and one of the break dancers are flirting
All of a sudden, she slaps him. What the...
Shes now getting attacked by masked break dancers? or is she joining the break dancers, is that why she has a mask?
NOW there's some modernized Bach, not done very well. Disappointment.
When is she going to learn breakdancing? Or is she teaching them ballet?
Last dance set is when she actually does some breakdancing?
What the eff happened?

WHY DID I WASTE MY MONEY ON THE SHOW! I Would have just paid to watch the violinist in the lobby!

So, so very Chicago. Even if you can't make it to a show, it's worth walking by just to snap a picture of the quintessential logo. The theater is red velvet with gold trip and just beautiful. I have seen some amazing performances come through this historic venue.

The facade is a landmark in its own right. This theater is a venue for concerts, movies, talks...just about anything goes.
