Great place to see a show. Nice variety of acts they book. A great time out. Plenty of restaurants in the area to grab dinner and drinks before a show. Highly recommend.

This is our new favorite venue. Honestly the back row is as close as the priciest seats in bigger venues. It's intimate and the sound is really great too. It's an old theater with the accompanying charm AND small seats :-)

Yes, walk over the bridge on the Fox River (1 block west) and you see Zsa Zsa's Italian Restaurant. Has good food, great drinks and a super nice long bar.
