The Mercury Theater is a very quaint and intimate theater. There isn’t a bad seat in the house. The sound was excellent. I attended the Women of Soul production; it was awesome.

We love the Mercury, and cannot wait for all of the great new shows. We met the new director and staff during Art Fest, and they are wonderful.

I’ve watched Spamalot here, and it was my 1st experience of watching a musical on stage. The artists were excellent - singing, acting - everything beyond expectations. The theater is cozy, which makes you feel among family and friends in the audience; and all the seats, I’m sure, provide great view. You can discover a new work of Monty Python only limited amount of times, and I’m grateful to this venue for having had such an experience on their premises.

This is a sweet, small theater that is a hidden gem. Quite easy to miss it. Saw Little Shop of Horrors a few months ago and it was great. Very well done. Saw Spamalot recently and it too was very well done, very professional. Will definitely go back.

I like the size we saw Spamelot and it was very good.
We did look around and found 1/2 price tickets. It's connected to a good restaurant which also has a bar that will give you a drink in a to go cup!

Our family had heard rave reviews over the years for Spamalot, but I had to admit I was reluctant to purchase tickets to a show being performed in such a small theater. I thought maybe it would be a lower quality show, but I could NOT have been more wrong! I couldn't BELIEVE the talent displayed on this small stage! The acting and singing was top notch! I will certainly keep this theater on my radar for shows in the future!

We enjoyed the Little Shop of Horrors today. The cast were great performers, all of them sang well too. The theatre was clean, bathrooms were spacious and clean. The only thing I didnt like about the venue was that they requested your email and name when purchasing your tickets so it was not a quick sale and keep it moving. I'm sure there is rationale or for advertising purposes but it was not timely. Also he had to manually enter the credit card number and billing info which took longer for card users that were with me. There was a nice photo OP backdrop. Customer service was good.

Excellent seats in a small theatre. Very nice space to see a show. Easy to get to, with plenty of places to eat and drink nearby.

Thrilled to see Little Shop of Horrors here! When planning our trip to Chicago I was at first disappointed as there wasn’t anything I wanted to see as far as shows. Then I expanded my trip outside of the theaters directly downtown & found this gem of a theatre. It was still easily accessible even by metro (short walk from Wrigley Field). They were playing a favorite musical of ours & I saw good reviews on this site. The reviews are correct - great theatre with only good seats, amazing talent! Such an enjoyable evening! Go to this theatre!

I did not even know this place was here until a group of us went to see Little Shop. Great theater, comfortable, incredible actors and musicians. I will for sure come back, prices are so reasonable and the neighborhood is so cool. The intimate cabaret space attached is a great addition. It is also attached to a restaurant where we had drinks after the show as we went to the 5pm show. Just wonderful.
