There are some casual dining options close by - first is the Nile on 55th Street for Middle Eastern cuisine. Medici on 57th Street is a campus classic, but can be crowded at dinner time. There are also new options on 53rd Street - Promontory, A10 and Yusho, but these will require parking and then moving your car or a long walk - plan accordingly.

Parking in the University garage on Ellis Avenue at 55th is inexpensive - it's right next door to Court.

The set design was great! I thought the show was a tad bit too long and I expected more on the musical front since it was about the life of a musician. Nonetheless, the actors and actresses were talented and it was delightful to celebrate August...continued

About the Ticket Supplier: Court Theatre

Since the Court's founding in 1955 at the University of Chicago, its work has been inspired by the belief that classic theatre illuminates the stories and themes that are timely and timeless. Each one of the theatre company's provocative productions has guided its artists and audiences on an exploration into the vast human consciousness, and has created a timeline that connects the present to the past. Theatre, and classic theatre in particular, gives us insight into the past, understanding of our present, and directs us toward our future.
