Arie Crown Theater

The Arie Crown Theater—named after Lithuanian-native business tycoon, Arie Crown, and Theater, his loyal shar pei—has been a Chicago staple since 1960. Although its home at McCormick Place caught fire in 1967, somehow the theater was spared. It emerged from the smoke to welcome the biggest names in entertainment to its stage, acts including the Rolling Stones, the Temptaitions, the Bolshoi Ballet, and Jerry Seinfeld as well as stagings of Hello Dolly with Carol Channing and The King and I with Yul Brenner.

    “This is my favorite venue in the area. Whether you are seating in the balcony or the main floor the stage (performance) is clearly visible. The venue is always clean (at least the times I have been there). The only thing is there are no rails on the stairs (in the balcony like many theaters) so you have be careful on them especially during the show when it is dark or if you are wearing high heels. ”
