Lake County Theatres
Broadway shows and musicals are waiting for you...

The impressive lineup of Broadway musicals from the Marriott Theatre in Lincolnshire, once again outdoes itself. There's no business like show business at the Lincolnshire theatre, as it features a loaded schedule of must-see performances every year. Enjoy one of their overnight packages and stay at the Lincolnshire Marriott Resort or dine at King’s Wharf for some of the best steak and seafood on Chicago’s North Shore.

After being restored to its original grandeur, the Genesee Theatre is once again home to world class performances including Broadway shows, musical acts, comedians and more. From the comfort of your red velvet chairs, the glitz and glam still sparkles beneath its renovated golden dome ceiling and antique chandeliers. This historical venue was an area favorite for Hollywood types in the 1930’s and big names from around the world continue to be drawn to its beauty and charm.

Citadel Theatre Company in Lake Forest is a creative haven for theatre lovers. See performances from passionate, visionary directors, writers, actors and designers in an experience of emotional and intellectual richness they inspire. Insider Tip: Bring your ticket stub to Lovell’s Restaurant in Lake Forest and receive a free glass of wine with a menu purchase!
