Oriental Theatre Chicago History

A treasured piece of the redevelopment of Chicago's downtown theater district, the Oriental Theatre was originally built in 1926 as a movie palace. The theater has been revamped into a state-of-the-art space perfect for musical theater productions, with Ragtime being the first in October 1998. Three levels embrace 2,200 plush seats under a tremendous domed ceiling adorned with grand seahorses and goddesses. Reminiscent of an Asian temple, the Oriental Theater draws your eyes in many different directions, providing the perfect backdrop for a great show no matter who is coming to stage.

And over the years, there have been some unbelievable shows that have come to Oriental Theatre in Chicago, a place that tends to know a little bit about live entertainment. But it doesn't get any better than Oriental Theatre, where musicals like Billy Elliot, Wicked and Ragtime represent just a few of the different great shows that have come through town. Once you're there watching the big show the way it was meant to be seen, you'll be glad that you're not sitting anywhere else.
