Marriott's Lincolnshire Theatre means Broadway for the northern suburbs and much of Chicago. – The Venue
Located on the 168-acre Mariott resort complex in suburban Lincolnshire, the 800-seat, in-the-round theater has become the place to go for theater fans looking for slick, professional productions away from downtown--and maybe dinner at one of the resort's restaurants beforehand. The arena stage means that all seats have equally good sight lines. A wet bar serves patrons in the lobby and another adjoins the second-floor theater entrance.
The theater's revivals are regularly praised by critics and have received more than 140 Joseph Jefferson nominations. Though it specializes in securing already-successful musicals (vintage fare like "Gypsy," "South Pacific" and "West Side Story"), M.L.T. has been venturesome enough to take chances on untried, lesser-known or unjustly neglected works. Inaugurating the trend was 1983's "Give My Regards to Broadway," the theater's first world premiere. M.L.T.'s version of "Hot Mikado" was later seen in London. The hit London musical "Windy City" received its American premiere at M.L.T. And Cole Porter's "The New Yorkers," supposedly lost for 64 years, proved a delightful rediscovery in 1996.
Originally known as Drury Lane Theatre North when it debuted in 1975, the theater was intended as a "star" house with TV or film celebrities headlining--and production values suffering accordingly. In 1979, the executive producer abandoned that faltering system and began producing Equity-level musicals whose quality spoke for itself. Box office business sprang up so fast that the theater became the first in the Chicago area to install its own sophisticated computer system (way back when). The theater now attracts well over 400,000 patrons each season.
For the Kids
In 1988 the theater began staging productions for young audiences. The fairly sophisticated fare varies from classic fairy tales to original works. But the constant draw has been the caref
Dated... – Unless you play Golf, no reason to stay. The hotel as a whole is very dated and worn. The rooms are really spread out and a long way from the lobby and restaurants. Typically you are advised to drive to your room and to enter through the patio door. The food is average and the service poor. The theater is hit and miss at best as well as very expensive. There are a couple of good restaurants in the area such as Wildfire and Bin 29 but these are very crowded and you will need reservations.
Lincolnshire is a nice place to visit in the summer for its biking and walks but I do not see anything worth visiting for again unless you play golf. The golf course is very nice.
