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.
The tour encompasses historical and architectural highlights of the building, including the grand lobby areas, majestic auditorium and backstage space (when possible) where performers through the years, including Julie Andrews, David Copperfield, Sammy Davis, Jr., John Denver, Joel Grey, the cast of Family Guy, Dustin Hoffman, Tom Jones, Diana Krall, Annie Lennox, Dean Martin, Liza Minnelli, Bob Newhart, Olivia Newton-John, Conan O’Brien, Frank Sinatra, Neil Young, Widespread Panic and Charlie Sheen have left their autographs on the walls of dressing rooms and corridors. Our guides will share with you the stories of the visionaries who opened The Chicago Theatre, whose influence on popular entertainment in Chicago is still recognized today. Tours also include the photo exhibit in The Chicago Theatre’s lower lobby, Chicago: Three Centuries of Theatres.
