We ate at the Flat Top Grill 1 1/2 blocks west of the theater on Belmont ahead of time. We found street parking midway between Flat Top and 773, and it was free after 6 p.m... it was almost as perfect as on TV!

My sister and I LOVED this show! We were laughing so much and had a great time. This is the second show we've seen at the Theatre Building Chicago (the first was La Cage Aux Folles) and we were NOT disappointed. I'm so sorry for you if you...continued

Description

After a well-received run at Davenport’s, _I’ll Stop the World and Beltwith You _is moving to the Theatre Building Chicago. Belt is a John Hughes-inspired music revue where teen angst collides with some of the raddest tunes from the decade that launched the synthesizer, Madonna and MTV. So break out your legwarmers and Member’s Only jacket because “Goonies never say die!”… and neither do the 80’s.

So for those of you who lived through the 80’s, Repeat & Fade Productions’ Belt will offer you a chance to escape into your youth and forget what year it is. Through the story telling prowess of a selection of classic songs such as Time After Time, Take on Me, and Against All Odds, you’ll watch five characters pulled straight from the 80’s dealing with the same issues they dealt with in movies like, The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink and Say Anything. For those of you who didn’t live through the decade that redefined mankind, well … the 80’s are back!
