Venue was great! Free snacks, nice lobby area....the only negative is the seats...they are folding chairs with worn out cushions...caused numb butt, not just for us, but we saw many seated in front of us shifting in their seats frequently trying to get comfortable. I did see someone brought a seat cushion...so they must have had past experience at this venue.

The play was not for everyone, but the acting and the theater itself made me pleased that I had seen it. The physical space of the lobby with a cute bar (you can bring your own wine) and cookies, candy and nuts was really charming.

Play was advertised as a "comedy," very little was funny - in fact while a few did laugh at some lines, those moments were limited and actually I did not find funny. Also, casting of a couple of the roles seemed "off" esp. a male character who...continued

About the Ticket Supplier: Oil Lamp Theater

Oil Lamp Theater was originally founded in February 2005 as a by-invitation-only theater group. The Theater was dedicated to the preservation of a traditional theater experience in unique and original venues. Keith Gerth staged 20 productions for up to 35 friends and guests each night in his home, a condo in Lakeview. The name of the company comes from Keith’s childhood, where due to the rural nature of his hometown, they lost power often and used oil lamps to light the house. This brought the family closer and created a beautiful soft and intimate glow. In March 2012, Oil Lamp Theater was incorporated as a not-for-profit theater and has established its new location in downtown Glenview. Our new venue provides seating for 60 guests.
