Ford Center For Performing Arts - Chicago, IL

With mystical architecture inspired by the Far East, the Ford Center for Performing Arts is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the must-visit attractions in Chicago. The venue, which opened in 1926 as the Oriental Theatre, used to show movies and plays. By the late 1970s, it fell into a state of disrepair and was eventually closed for more than 15 years. A restoration was completed in 1998, featuring gothic revival architecture, a palette of vibrant colors, opulent carvings and plush velvet seats with unobstructed stage views.

The theater has been a popular spot for jazz musicians, with legends like Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald gracing its stage. Since it reopened, the Ford Center has been the home of a number of Broadway productions, including The King and I, Newsies: The Musical, Mamma Mia!, Matilda the Musical and Billy Elliot.

Ford Center for Performing Arts is located in the revitalized North Loop Theatre District of the city. With numerous restaurants nearby, there’s no shortage of dining options before or after a show. There are a number of parking garages and lots within walking distance to the theater, but it can also be accessed via public transportation. The Brown, Green, Orange, Pink and Purple Line Express elevated lines exits are 1.5 blocks from the theater.
