Court Theatre is one of the few first-class theaters on the South Side. Situated on the campus of the University of Chicago, this comfortable, 251-seat subscription Equity theater has been home to classical drama (by Moliere, Beaumarchais, Shakespeare) and sparkling modern classics (by Stoppard, Feydeau, Molnar, Wilde, Overmyer), as well as an outlet for such products of local talent as Donna Blue Lachman's "Frida: The Last Portrait." Under the artistic directorship of Charles Newell, the theater has continued its tradition of rotating repertory. From the outside the theater resembles a concrete bunker, but inside you'll find excellent sight lines, seats, acoustics and air conditioning.
- Address 5535 S. Ellis Ave.
