The Theater on the Lake in Chicago is an excellent way for residents and out-of-town visitors alike to enjoy two of the Windy City’s greatest attributes; a fantastic view of the skyline from the Lake Michigan shore, and an evening of Chicago’s off-Loop theater. The theater was originally built in 1920 as a sanitarium for babies and children with tuberculosis. It was constructed in what is known as the Prairie School style, and has been in use as a venue for theatrical productions for over fifty years.
Each week a different theatrical company stages a production. It’s a good idea to make reservations, as some shows sell out. The theater is open to the outdoors, so weather is a factor. There is no air-conditioning to counter hot summer nights, and a sweater or jacket is advisable for cool nights. Admission prices are very reasonable. The performance season is from May to August, Wednesdays through Sundays.
