The PrivateBank Theatre Information

The PrivateBank Theatre - Theater in Chicago.

The corporate name is new; the theater is not. Dating from 1906 (then called the Majestic Theater), the Bank of America Theatre is home to large-scale Broadway shows. With 2,016 seats, the gilded theater was at one time the tallest building in the city. Today, it is clustered with several other large theaters in the Loop to make up the city’s most prominent theater district.

Seating is divided between orchestra, dress circle, mezzanine, and balcony sections, with 26 side boxes. The theater was originally a vaudeville venue, but it was redone in the 1940s in glitzy gold and red tones for an extravagant feel. Many original fixtures, like the mosaic floor in the lobby, have been preserved.

Shows at the Bank of America Theatre include Broadway in Chicago group’s The Book of Mormon, Jersey Boys, and Monty Python’s Spamalot. Since Broadway companies often test out shows in Chicago before New York openings, some shows, such as Spamalot, had their world premieres here. Tickets to the Bank of America Theatre’s popular shows are found on Ticketmaster and through many ticket brokers.
