What a beautiful theater. Great to have it kept as intricate and elegant as ever. Seeing the play Wicked at this venue was phenomenal.
Admission to the building and all exhibits are free. It's right across the street from Cloud Gate 'The Bean' and definitely worth a visit.
Seeing pictures is nothing like being there. It is jaw dropping. The dome, marble, etc. the place makes you feel like royalty. We were on a Tastebud tour and were able to learn many interesting facts which I think helped to enjoy it even more. Absolutely beautiful.

I've been here twice and am always glad I stop and check out the exhibits and performances here. It's been free both times I've visited and building itself is worth visiting.
