Auditorium Theatre

Time Out says

The National Historic Landmark Auditorium Theatre opened in 1889 and is still considered a stunning piece of architecture (it was designed by Louis Sullivan and Dankmar Adler, with a young Frank Lloyd Wright assisting as a draftsman). Boasting excellent acoustics and sight lines, the theater hosts shows and events of all genres, including Broadway hits, slam poetry competitions, a National Geographic Live speaker series, international and local dance, and rock concerts (Neil Young, David Byrne and Death Cab for Cutie have all performed recently). The theater is the Chicago home of the renowned dance companies Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and American Ballet Theatre, and currently hosts The Joffrey Ballet. Historic theater tours are offered four times a week.
