My husband and I saw the Great Chicago Fire play here over the holidays. I really enjoyed the performance but the layout of the theater is what really impressed me. You have to sit in the balcony, what an amazing view! It was like a Birdseye view of the scene. Didn't hurt that you can buy drinks at the box office and bring them in with you. There is a dinner theater in April featuring Rick Bayless, I will be there!

Visiting Chicago for the first time, we wanted to try out the theater scene. We were intregued by the dinner theater idea, but almost didn't choose Cascabel due to the price. Boy are we glad we decided to splurge! From the moment you enter the theater, you are draw into the festivites with h'ordevre and drinks. The story line combines inventive narrative plot, food preparation and eating to progress the plot and dinner, humor, acrobatics singing and dancing. All unexpected. The level of sophistocation of acrobatics, contortionist, clowning, flaminco, was beyond compare, brought tear to my eyes in beauty or fun. Oh, and the food itself was creative/ mouth watering. In a word: GO!

Everything I've seen here is great, full of details, emotional, it shows how much they must enjoy putting it together. Season after season, this is the place to go for a unique theater experience that will capture and touch all the senses. They do wonders with the place, always morphing according to the play needs; it always work!, can't say enough good things about them.

Small venue so there's not a bad seat in the house. We saw Mr. Rickey calls a Meeting while we were there and it was a great play! Great location on Michigan Ave right by the Water Tower place mall.
