Owner description: The Lookingglass Theatre Company seeks to redefine the limits of theatrical experience and to make theatre exhilarating, inspirational, and accessible to all.Through theatre, which invites, even demands, interaction with its audience, the company's goal is to fire the imagination with love, to celebrate the human capacity to taste and smell, weep and laugh, create and destroy, and wake up where we first fell --- changed, charged and empowered.

Theatre without a net. Go see it. Most productions are first-of-a-kind, never seen before. Tony Awards Winner.

“Exciting theater in a historic setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

Lookingglass Theater offers exciting theater-often with acrobatics in the pre-Chicago fire Pumping Station. Small and intimate. Not a bad seat in the place and consistently excellent productions. Great for visitors because of location on the Mag Mile (Michigan Ave).

“Always a worthwhile experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2012

After going to a couple plays in the last few years, I signed on as a subscriber this year and next. The plays are always a bit out of the ordinary and the actors are so energetic and fun. Especially love how they incorporate acrobatics into most plays, even those you would not expect.

“Exciting, different and good location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2012

Centering most of the emphasis on movement, this company manages to tell some truly beautiful stories.
Top notch and professional, they always manage to keep things fresh and new even within the limitations of a sparse stage.
Worth experiencing. Plenty to do in the area before and after shows!
