Apollo Theater Chicago
The Apollo Theater is a lush venue located in the heart of the fashionable Lincoln Park neighborhood. Built in 1978 by theater producers Jason Brett and Stuart Oken, it boasts a dramatic glass and concrete design conceived by Chicagoan Michael Lustig. Its three-quarter thrust stage has 440 seats configured in 11 rows, allowing audiences an almost interactive experience.
Its rich theatrical history includes David Mamet's "Sexual Perversity," "The Vagina Monologues" and the award-winning, long-running production of "Million Dollar Quartet."
The Apollo is also home to Emerald City Theatre Company, Chicago's largest children's theater company.
