Went to see rent here in may. Accustics were great seats were older but comfortable. But the the thing that sticks out in my mind the most is the detail everywhere in this beautiful old theatre. I'm glad I finally had been there.

This is one of the amazing venues in Chicago, great for seeing a show. Staff is great and not really a bad seat in the house.

The Theater is majestic, but the staff is a bunch a senior citizens who are very rude. They rush you out after the show and yell at you if you have to use the washroom.

We saw "Circus 1903," which is essentially a collection of circus acts, indoors. Each of the performers was amazing. I had never actually been to a circus before, so seeing these performers up close was a revelation. The ringmaster brought some small children on stage...More

The Oriental is a beautiful, majestic theatre. Only thing is the performance Circus 1903 was not that great. Might be good for kids but not really worth the money and time.

Beautiful theatre, FABULOUS show. SOOOO entertaining for the whole family. The performances were mesmerizing. The ringmaster is an absolute blast, especially when he selects children from the audience to participate for lots of fun on stage.

What a great place to catch a show. Very retro. Beautifully redone. Do a pretty solid job with beverage service before show and intermission. You can bring the drinks/food you by in. Bathrooms for women have long lines... be strategic about it.

Thank you for your question, however I am not sure I understand what you are asking. If you are referencing buses, I am not aware of any specific pick up or drop off points.

Yes, but you will want to call the box office to get your tickets. Some of the balcony seats would not be very accessible for those kinds of needs.
