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

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.

Bring a comfortable cushion to sit on, and a fan. Bring a bottle of wine, there is no corkage fee! Also, cookies, candy and nuts were provided for free.

Keith is a great host--welcomes you with a smile and chats with you if you wish. His background is very interesting.

Always an event to attend a show at this quaint 60 seat theater. I've never been disappointed in the 6 or 7 plays I've seen there.

Best kept secret in Chicagoland theater, but word of mouth is increasing the attendance.

If you haven't been to Oil Lamp Theatre before, be prepared to be welcomed like an old friend--complete with homemade cookies.

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!

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

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.
