The show has changed a lot over the years. I saw it probably ten years ago and really enjoyed how there was lots of percussion and comedy in it. Nowadays, they use too much technology in it including having fake iphones on the stage. Still...More

I guess my expectations were too high. I read the reviews and wanted to enjoy this show. The first 10-15 minutes were very entertaining, but it became very predictable and boring after that. My daughter and I sat front row and that was too close....More

I wasn't entertained the entire time. There is no doubt they are talented. It would be a great show for young kids. Certain times I was just very bored and other times it was very neat. It would be good for families.

Very small theater so all seats are good ones. There was no one in the balcony seats but they would be a great choice for unobstructed viewing. The show had lots of audience participation and one from our group was chosen to do a 20...More

We took the CTA 22 bus from downtown- which was very convenient and less expensive! Only had to walk a couple minutes when we got off at Clark & Berry.

I think you actually do see a bit better when you're a bit further back. In Chicago, the first rows are below stage level, and there are things to watch the length and breadth of the stage. You do have a better overall... More
