Yelp didn't list it as a restaurant but we went to Julius Meinl for a light supper before the play. It is a block south of the theater.

Parking is awful. See review above.The City did a good job of discouraging me as a suburban person from spending my dollars in Chicago.

The NT production Othello gets att 5 stars (even more, were they available...) Such a fantastic production! Superb acting, and very clever stage design. I'm so grateful for NT Live!!!

But the Music Box just gets 3-4 stars or so. The seats are...continued

Really good performance. Seeing it as a simulcast from London enhanced the experience. Iago was fantastic.

Description

Olivier Award-winning actor Adrian Lester (Henry V at the National Theatre, BBC’s Hustle) takes the title role. Playing opposite him as the duplicitous Iago is fellow Olivier Award-winner Rory Kinnear (The Last of the Haussmans, James Bond: Skyfall), who is reunited with director Nicholas Hytner (Timon of Athens, One Man, Two Guvnors) following their acclaimed collaboration on the National Theatre’s recent production of Hamlet.
