Lovely, welcoming lobby offering a BYOB bar and fun snacks like cookies, nuts and M&Ms for theatre guests! Very talented cast. A small gem in Glenview!

I live in Glenview and appreciate the convenience and the quality of productions at Oil Lamp. The five women actresses were wonderful. I laughed and cried and am telling my friends about this fabulous play.

Some of the sketches were interesting and others were too drawn out. The venue is lovely and I would definitely go back.

Quotes & Highlights

“Funny, compelling…Brought down the house…but [the play] is not a comedy: A story about black cowboy boots becomes a sad tale of being underappreciated in a relationship; a tale of two women shopping for their wedding outfits ends bittersweetly; and the recollection of a new bra is a quiet testament to a women’s search for dignity while undergoing treatment for breast cancer.”
NY Times

“So funny and so powerful; so dear and sweet; so remindful of our female wiles, our worries, our insecurities, our remembrances of mother, father, sisters, brothers, lovers—I think it can’t miss.”
