Oil Lamp Theater

Reviewed By katherineburton923 - Chicago, United States

The Oil Lamp theatre in downtown Glenview is a real treat to attend. The theatre itself is very small and intimate, the actors do a great job and the offerings are always well suited to the tiny space. The theatre was originally an invitation only home production that has expanded into it’s current 60 seat venue while maintaining the same intimacy of a living room. There are always home made cookies and hot cocoa in the winter. Patrons are invited to bring a bottle of wine to be enjoyed before the show and during intermission. You will be personally greeted at the door and thanked for coming. The company offers four plays per season with an annual holiday rendition of A Radio Play of It’s a Wonderful Life with a Christmas tree set up in the living room lobby. Oil Lamp is a truly feel good place to enjoy intimate theatre.

Reviewed By anns1933 - Chicago, United States

Often the ticket holders are not allowed into their seats until 15-20 mins before showtime, but there is a small lobby offering drinks and snacks early. not a lot of seating, so if you want to relax with refreshment, get there early to have a table and chairs. The theatre seating itself is great. The boxes are fun to enjoy also. The location of this theatre is 100% better than going into the Loop.
