Hubby and I saw Peter Pan here. We have no kids, and knew it was kid-oriented, but still wanted to see it. My face hurt when I left from smiling so much! The whole cast sang well, we loved how they did Tink, and the...More
Production of Peter Pan was excellent! All of the actors could SING!! Was very impressed as I hadn’t heard of this place and we went in just to pass the time before our lunch cruise. Excellent and one of the highlights of our weekend!
I took my 7 year old son to this theater to see Peter Pan (their production for young audiences) and absolutely LOVED it! We were still humming a song when we left.
It’s such a beautiful little theater, not a bad seat in the house....More
Kids will love it, but adults will too. Great tech details and of course, FLYING. Runs 11a, Wednesdays, 11a & 2p, Thursday - Sundays. Kids $22 adults $34. The theater will validate parking to save 30%.
They do a lot with the stages. We really like the new theater that just opened. Avoid sitting high up in the old theater. It is reasonably priced. It is not difficult to park since they have a separate area for theater-goers.
DO NOT buy tickets for Upper Gallery Row B, section 7, seats 50 +. The seats are uncomfortable, and obstructed view. They do not tell you that they have an obstructed view anywhere when purchasing tickets. We felt like we were literally sitting on top...More
The recent production of “Macbeth” was apparently the first Shakespearean production to be performed in the new facility called The Yard. It is a beautiful facility and the show was magnificent! Ushers did seem unsure of how to seat people (especially the predominantly elderly audience...More
Getting to Navy Pier is a pain. We went to see Macbeth with my son, his wife and our 14 year old grandson. The drive to the Pier is a traffic nightmare and the parking is miserable and expensive ($28) although with a validated theatre...More
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as
the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Hello Vanessa, great question! The Theater has no formal dress code—so wear whatever makes you most comfortable. Some audience members dress up (dresses, heels, etc), but you're just as likely to see people wearing jeans. On... More
Hello Vanessa, great question! The Theater has no formal dress code—so wear whatever makes you most comfortable. Some audience members dress up (dresses, heels, etc), but you're just as likely to see people wearing jeans. On weeknights, many attendees come from work so business casual attire is common. We hope this helps! See you at the Theater soon.
