You can park around the back of Chief O'Neill's restaurant. Dress casual. Dining nearby is plentiful. We like Chicken and Salad works for a quick meal. Chief O' Neill's is good for dinner, and Tanos has a good quick pizza.

Quotes & Highlights

“The outlandish caper… suggests happy new territory for the company, which here unites its deliberately schlocky aesthetic with storytelling techniques that keep an audience engaged. The evening’s true highlight is the genial Rat Pack dynamic forged by the cast’s men. Meanwhile, Allison Cain gives a commanding performance as the villain’s girl, an austerely camp Bette Davis awash in a world of Chris Farleys.” —Time Out Chicago (Critic’s Pick)

“Those guys! Everybody loves those guys… Everything they say is soooo _

funny … They’re always ready with a song … the life of every party! Oh, yay … Here comes Mickey, and Kenny, and the other ones.”  

Before there were Clooney and Pitt, there were Frank and Dean… Now there’s Mickey and Kenny!

Factory Theater’s latest and swingiest_, Easy Six takes you back to the Rat Pack era… A little drinking, smoking, scheming, singing, gambling and a whole lot of fun! It all adds up to… _Easy Six. Now ain’t that a kick in the head?!
