The coziest of Broadway in Chicago’s downtown houses, the former Shubert Theatre (and, more recently, the former LaSalle Bank Theatre and Bank of America Theatre and PrivateBank Theatre) has been spectacularly renovated. Although it mainly features national tours of shows that have already played New York, it occasionally hosts pre-Broadway tryout engagements such as Spamalot and Twyla Tharp and Billy Joel’s Movin’ Out; it’s currently the Chicago home of Hamilton. Because of its intimacy, it’s also the downtown house most likely to host the occasional touring straight play.
