How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The Mercury Theater was a small venue when compared to Chicago's larger downtown theaters. The show was a story about a ship that is bringing Christmas trees to Chicago. The story is a good one and the Characters pull you into the story. It's a family show but younger kids in the audience probably under 7 y/o seemed to get a little bored by it. The show is interesting for both young and old. I think those who where first or second generation immigrants from European countries might find a particular connection to there own family experiences. To sum it up, we really liked the play and highly recommend it.

Help others enjoy a great night out

3/4 of audience was business casual. No need to dress up for show.
Not a lot of parking around neighborhood. They did have a valet there.
Take public transportation instead if you can.
Bar next door was decent food and on a Sunday evening not too crowded.
