I really like this space - the staff is always friendly and helpful, they have fun cocktails invented by their resident bartenders, and the small theater companies that perform at Theater Wit are all, in my experience, stellar. My biggest piece of advice is to show up early because the seating is general admission and when it's a full house latecomers often seem to struggle to find seats together. But if you're interested in discovering some of Chicago's best small (but mighty!) theater companies - I would suggest you start with anything playing at Theater Wit.

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.

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.
