Saw the Nutcracker Ballet at the Marcus Center. Well-run venue. I liked the layout and views from the seating area. Video screens, adjacent to stage, are also used for various performances.

Wonderful tradition to see the Nutcracker ballet performed at the Marcus Center for the holidays. Great performance and fun to see kids dressed up with their families.

Season ticket holders for the Broadway series and what a disappointment. We have loge seats and the audio was so bad you could’t understand the words. Oh well

Went to see Rent at Uihlein Hall. Interesting venue in terms of architecture, but the seating in the balcony needs more entrance/exit options other than just at the end of each row.

Seriously, an AMAZING staff! I was helping with a family wedding and the staff were so friendly, kind, helpful, generous. The food was delicious, the setting beautiful! It was a close to perfect as you can get.
