Lookingglass Theatre Company Tours

Lookingglass Theatre Company
Founded in 1988 by graduates of Northwestern University, the award-winning Lookingglass Theatre Company is known for putting on cutting-edge works that sometimes incorporate circus acts. Located in the historic Water Tower Water Works, the company has staged more than 65 world premieres.
The Basics
The main stage and seating area of the ensemble-based Lookingglass are typically reconfigured for each production. With only 270 seats—60 at the balcony level—the theater offers every theatergoer a clear view of the stage. The company also has a smaller studio space used for theater presentations, special events, classes, rehearsals, and intimate performances. Tickets are available online.

When to Get There
The theater’s plays and big productions tend to run for a few months at a time. Check the schedule for the latest offerings. Shows are typically staged once a day on weekdays and twice a day on weekends. Postshow discussions are held after the matinee on select Sundays.
