I have attended a few productions there, and while they have always been first-rate, the current production of "Tommy" is shockingly good. I never was that big a fan of the album (still am not) but this staging was spectacular, insightful, visually capturing, and possibly the best it could be. One thing I want to especially mention is the choreography and dancing, both of which at times slide to mediocrity in off-Broadway productions, but at the Paramount was fresh, interesting and had enough variety to overcome the other visual elements (ie, projections, scenery movements, etc). I d on't know where they get these dancers, but they are precise, energetic and eye-catching. I see they are doing "Cabaret" and "Les Miz" coming up at the Paramount and, even thought I've seen both more often than I can count (Chicago, LA and NY), after seeing "Tommy" I am looking forward to their interpretation of those shows even more.

Gorgeous renovated theater. The sight lines and sound quality are quite good. The theater is located in the heart of downtown Aurora. A great place to see a broadway style production.

This Sunday was my first time visiting the Paramount Theatre (and downtown Aurora) and I was very impressed with the venue. The theatre is gorgeous inside and out and can hold it's own against the larger theaters in downtown Chicago. I loved the ornately decorated ceiling and beautiful deco wall-hangings. We had orchestra seats for the production of RENT (which was fantastic!!), there was ample leg room and great vantage point of the stage from row F. The bathrooms has vey long lines during intermission, and after dashing from the main floor, to the balcony to the basement, I found the lower level to have the shortest line.

Great theater close to home. I can not express how great the MARY POPPING was. I have been enjoying the theater for 9-10 years now, never a bad show.

For the suburbs this is a fairly nice theatre. The inside is decorative and seats a decent amount of people. The concessions prices are much less than in Chicago which was a nice treat. I saw RENT here and it was phenomenal, the sets and actors did great.

This Tony Award winning musical "IN THE HEIGHTS" was not only Broadway-caliber, but rates as one of my very favorites. I fell in love with this musical in 2008 first seeing it on Broadway and have attended other performances of “ITH” over the years. This heartfelt story has a talented cast, beautiful ballads, energetic dance routines, live orchestra, and a perfect replica of the original set. The work that these performers and production staff have invested into this show is evident. Seemingly effortlessly, smooth and slick, and as professional the Broadway production, “IN THE HEIGHTS” never misses a beat, a step or a word in the fast-paced dialogue. Artistic Director, Jim Corti has to be proud of his flawless production. Highly recommend - *****5 STARS!!!
