Stage 773

Formerly known as Theatre Building Chicago, this four-theater rental house has been the incubator to countless storefront companies since the late 1970s. Some feature the city’s top-shelf Equity actors; others are produced on a dime. (Translation: You’ll want to consult a few reviews to decipher what’s what.) Newly renamed and under the new management of Lukaba Productions, its former annual tenant as producers of January’s Sketchfest, the venue continues to play host; a major renovation was completed in 2012.

The waiting/bar area of this theater is great. The drink menu is very interesting. They have hot alcoholic drinks! 

However, the stage here itself isn't that great unless you're in the first row. The seating makes it a problem to be able to see the entire stage, and the stage itself is quite small. I would definitely recommend getting there early to get the best seat.
