Nice place, great environment, and decorative features are pretty cool. Location is fantastic. The seating is good but if you have a tall person sitting in front of you, you could get annoyed.

Don't think there's a bad seat in the house. Not a large venue, about 2000. Good sound. I have to say the seats have seen better days, however replacement is in the future.

Been coming to the Paramount for several years, taking advantage of their great off Broadway shows. Get the season tickets and buy all four of their shows in advance. Performances measure up to anything you see in Chicago, on Broadway or in London & I’ve...More

We always enjoy the variety and quality of the entertainment at the Paramount. Top Broadway shows to comedy like Tim Allen, Steven Wright, Billy Gardell, Larry the Cable Guy, Frank Caliendo and others.

This is an Awesome theatre! The production was very moving. More like the Broadway production than the 1972 movie, they’ve made some changes like setting the Kit Kat club in a basement that really make sense. The talented cast was spot on perfect. Sally is...More
