Marriott Theatre in Lincolnshire, IL is a great place to see great plays for any age. They have children's productions as well as adult productions. I have seen several plays there and have enjoyed every single one. I brought my son to see Cats, Oliver and most recently, Into the Woods - all were well done and the acting was superb. My parents have season tickets and they look forward to each and every play they go to. It is great to have a neighborhood theatre with the elegance and professionalism as a downtown theatre.
They do great musicals here. The cost of the tickets is fairly inexpensive (especially when downtown places cost you three times as much). And, the theater is in the round, so you don't have bad seats. The actors move around a lot, so if one has his/her back to you, hold on, it will change in two minutes.
The acting and singing and dancing have always been superb. And, they have two great restaurants so you can eat before or after the show.
We saw The Wizard of Oz here in the square stage theatre. I bought a dinner and show package and what a great night. The meal was the best. Steak, lobster all the trimming. The salad, the bread everything was great. Best service as well. The show was fantastic. Top notch and very professionally done. There was not a bad seat in the house. Highly recommend!!!
