Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The largest of Broadway in Chicago’s owned-and-operated theaters in the Loop with more than 2,300 seats, this ornate venue opened in 1926 as the Palace Theatre, a vaudeville house on the Orpheum Circuit. At various points in the 20th century it served as a movie house, a banquet hall and a rock venue. After sitting mostly unused through the 1990s, it got a major facelift and restoration as part of Mayor Richard M. Daley’s Downtown Theater District initiative and reopened in 1999 as the Cadillac Palace. Since then it’s hosted the pre-Broadway tryouts of The Producers and Mamma Mia!, and has also been home to extended runs of Disney’s The Lion King and Aladdin.
