If you park in the parking lot behind the Chicago Theatre for a show, make sure you get validated. It will save you some money.

Chris was an excellent tour guide and I really enjoyed hearing Lee Mahoney play the theater's organ. We were in every part of the theater---mezzanine, balcony,main floor, stage, dressing room and lobbies.

Absolutely loved the "insiders" tour of the Chicago Theatre. I would recommend it to anyone interested in history, architecture, or Chicago in general. Also a way to get a good behind the scenes look at a venue where I often attend shows.
