The theatre is very cozy and elegant. They provided snacks consisting of yummy snicker doodle cookies, mixed nuts, and m&ms. It was a nice Sunday afternoon for the four of us.

There's a smallish lot adjacent to the bldng., but it's in downtown Glenview, so street parking is available nearby.

Always an event to be there. Keith, the owner, oftentimes director, and artistic director, is always welcoming, positive and fun to speak with. The plays he chooses are terrific and the acting is superb. I attend anything I can there. Treat yourself!

An interesting topic and worth watching. The theater tries to give people a warm and welcoming experience. The complexity and issues in the plot were not ones we have seen before. I would recommend it!

I would highly recommend this show--it's an intriguing plot, well acted, and based on current practices used in deciding who gets a transplant organ. The playhouse is... 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.
