My wife is a clinical social worker in private practice. She laughed and laughed and recommended it to friends and colleagues in the field.

Very enjoyable. Funny story and in general, great acting. I thought the main character went a little overboard with his acting. The snacks that are served at this theater are an added treat. The free parking next door is also helpful.

We arrived 45 min before the show and went to reserve our seats for 4. To our surprise, the first 4 rows had already been reserved by management...maybe. I think they were family of the cast? Anyway, we had a good time with our friends and...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.
