I love seeing shows at The Wit! The staff at the box office are always friendly and eager to help me, no matter how many questions I have. The theaters themselves are small enough for an intimate show, but large enough for a rousing audience. It's an inexpensive way to get into local Chicago theater, and it's even close to home. I can't stress this enough - if you're not sure what to do on a Saturday night, go see a show at The Wit.

Ignore the review stating they weren't let in. Going to theatre is not like going to the movies. If you show up late the theatre has the right deny you entrance. Theatre wit is a great space. Seen multiple shows here and had a great experience everytime. They put up great shows with great actors.

Saw state of the art, more up and coming theatre here. They do a great job of picking new plays that do something different. They are able to pick good quality plays. Inexpensive, and worth all of the money. Good service. Nice, intimate theatre setting.
