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.

Casual atmosphere. Folding chairs, good view of the stage. Actors excellent, lots of laughs. Ending of play was a little weak - but did not disturbe the overall outstanding performance.

The play which was thoroughly enjoyable is performed by a group of very talented actors. The atmosphere at the theater is warm and cozy. The director was there to greet us and talk to us. We were also treated to homemade cookies, warm apple...continued

We had a great time! As we are in our 50s with kids in their 20s, we could relate to so many situations presented in this play. We loved the performances, loved the theater, we'll be back again soon!

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.
