Chicago Theater: Drury Lane's "Rock of Ages"

The story: We’re actually in the middle of Drury Lane’s 2017-18 season, but tickets are still available for their last three shows, all big-budget musicals and a guaranteed good time. Drury Lane Theatre, named for the iconic Theatre Royal Drury Lane in London, once boasted five theaters in the Chicago area: The original dinner theater in Evergreen Park (opened in 1958), Water Tower Place (now the Broadway Playhouse), North (now the Marriott Lincolnshire Theatre), East (a short-lived venue at McCormick Place), and Oakbrook Terrace, opened in 1984 and now the only one that remains. In the past 30-plus years, they’ve produced more than 300 shows, largely crowd-pleasing musicals.

The shows: “Rock of Ages” (Aug. 24 – Oct. 15); “42nd Street” (Oct. 26, 2017 – Jan. 7, 2018); and “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” (Jan. 18 – March 25, 2018).

The deal: It’s too late in the season for the deal, but you can still buy group tickets at a discount. Single tickets are available for all shows ($47 – $62) or as part of a meal package ($63 – $97).
