Auditorium Theatre - Chicago, IL (67 Upcoming Events)

When Louis Sullivan and Dankmar Adler designed the 4,000-seat Auditorium Theatre in 1889, they used then-modern technology including electric lights and air conditioning. It was the tallest building in Chicago at the time, and the first multiuse building ever designed. Nearly 130 years later, it remains an architectural wonder nestled in the heart of the city. Multiple renovation projects have preserved the immaculate building and its 24-karat gold-leafed ceiling arches, intricate stencil patterns, ornate gilded and bas-relief designs, along with wall mosaics and murals by Charles Holloway and Albert Fleury.

Auditorium Theatre was initially intended for operatic performances, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra made its debut in the building in 1891. In the 1960s, rock ‘n’ roll took center stage, playing host to legends like the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane. More recently, the theater has boasted a variety of productions, from music and dance to lectures with prominent writers and speakers. The Joffrey Ballet calls the venue home, and in partnership with Broadway in Chicago, it has hosted productions of Sister Act and Priscilla Queen of the Desert.

The theater is a short walk from Grant Park on the Roosevelt University Campus. It’s easily accessible by car and by public transit, and there’s plenty of parking within a couple of blocks. Lodging is widely available, and the local restaurants reflect the extensive variety for which Chicago is known. Families visiting for a show should make time for the Museum of Contemporary Photography, and music lovers can enjoy cocktails and a performance at the renowned Buddy Guy’s Legends a couple of blocks away.
