Editorial Review of Stage 773

A showcase for countless permanent and transient Chicago theater companies, this three-theater complex (each space is differently configured but contains exactly 148 seats) has hosted more than 225 theater companies since opening its doors in 1977. Its new, primary tenant is Stage 773 (formerly known as Lubaka Productions).

Excellently maintained, the three theaters are comfortably air-conditioned, with excellent sight lines and adequate acoustics. Depending on who's using the spaces, it can be a little too dimly lit in the theaters, but there's a nice bar, tables and chairs out in the lobby. There's also a cool little chandelier contraption made out of collanders (as in, the metal bowl things with the little holes in them that you use to rinse vegetables or strain spaghetti). Signs on the walls detailing the building's history make for some interesting reading.
