We went to Sri Siam Thai just a few minutes away on Waukegan and it was SO good. Highly recommend it.

First, I love this theater in particular--it's so small, welcoming, and cozy. This play was well-performed and can be quite serious at times about the changes within marriages over the years. But it was also enlightening to hear each character...continued

Very poignant play with outstanding acting. The story is thought-provoking but laced with a lot of humor. This theater is always a joy to visit. You'll feel like you're visiting longtime friends rather than just attending a performance.

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.
