I've been to "Lincolnshire" (as we locals tend to call it) dozens of times. Allow me to give you this assessment of what you should expect beyond the many good reviews here. Easiest way is to think of it as AAA baseball.

AAA baseball is the upper echelon of the minor leagues. The stop that the best players make days or weeks before they hit the majors. And where some on any given day are just as good or maybe even better. Plus a few solid performers who stay in place. The analogy to baseball is particularly fitting because these days it's difficult to see a bad production here. Some are better than others, a few not too great and a few are as good or better than you'll see anywhere else.

Think of the days when the Chicago Cubs would play their AAA farm team and the AAA team would win. There are a few shows here that are like that. Most are in the category of the players on the cusp of the majors and almost all of the rest are still worthwhile. For the price, it's hard to beat.

Locals hint: It can get cold in the theater so be prepared.

If you want to experience theater in a more intense way, theater in the round does that. The way actors move in and out of scenes from the audience and play to all four walls makes the theater feel alive! We saw West Side Story and it was amazing! The technical crew should get a round of applause for the lighting and set designs. The actors were fantastic and the orchestra was clear and not overpowering. It truly is a better experience than traditional theaters.

Just attended West Side Story production. Best ever! The theater is requiring proof of vac or neg tests results. Mask on!

Theater in the round, 8 rows deep- not a bad seat. Lots of legroom, 15 min intermission. Parking for regular folk is good with easy in and out. Like Drury Lane or Northlight but with better parking.

Just went to see 'Oliver!' here and had a nice experience - especially with the fact you can see Off Broadway level performances right here in the Northern Suburbs. The good is that the theater is intimate and in-the-round so almost every seat is a good view and experience. I'm sure the quality of performance varies from show to show, however for this one the cast was very good. The child actors were truly outstanding and a handful of the adults were stand out performers with the rest likely using acting as a hobby. The seats are mostly comfortable except for the front rows towards the aisles as I noticed with the floor on a deep angle which means very little comfortable leg room. For those with trouble walking up stairs (as there are three flights worth just to get inside the theater!), there is a lift available that drops you to a smaller lobby off of the aisle between section 1 & 4. Keep this in mind as those with walking issues will have difficulty traversing the aisles if they're seating in section 2 & 3, Concessions stand is tiny. It was a nice experience - just don't expect Broadway or West End level which is fine. Pricing for the tickets should remain as is ~$52/seat for night performances. Anything higher and I would go elsewhere.

What a great show! Fabulous cast. The young actors were outstanding. This was a Sunday afternoon holiday treat for our family. The theater is charming and has easy access.

We were at Marriott Theater recently for Oliver! It was absolutely fantastic. The performance was great. The actor playing Oliver Twist was fantastic. Kai Edgar was playing the roll on this visit, and he was excellent. Amazing that an eight year old had such emotion and his was singing was excellent. The venue was excellent as well. It is such a intimate setting. We were sitting on an aisle and at the beginning of the show when the boys are singing "Food Glorious Food" they were right next to us. So cool. It was our first visit to Marriott Theater, and we will definately be back.

99%of the plays are excellent. Only one was very poorly written, but the actors were great. Seating is great for viewing anywhere.

I have never been disappointed for the plays put on in the theater. We just saw Something Rotten and it was very funny. It is worth checking out the subscription series. Always something new or a different flavor of something you may have seen as a movie. Highly recommend!

No matter what you go to see your seats are going to be good ~ this is set up like a theatre in the round, it is not so large that if you are in the back you can't see, any seat is a good seat!
