The Lookingglass Theatre Company seeks to redefine the limits of theatrical experience and to make theatre exhilarating, inspirational, and accessible to all.Through theatre, which invites, even demands, interaction with its audience, the company's goal is to fire the imagination with love, to celebrate the human capacity to taste and smell, weep and laugh, create and destroy, and wake up where we first fell --- changed, charged and empowered.

Spent a great dinner and show at Lookingglass to see 20,000 Leagues Under the Seas. The tickets got us discounted parking for $16 instead of the $31 expected and 15% off dinner at a nearby restaurant. An overall great evening with out of town family.

What an amazing performance on such a small stage. So close to the actors, almost makes you part of the play. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Chicago this summer. A must see.

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
