Last night, the red carpet was rolled out for the opening night of Motown the Musical in Chicago at the Oriental Theatre. The man behind Motown, Mr. Berry Gordy, was in attendance, along with music legend Smokey Robinson. Director Charles Randolph-Wright, Producer Kevin McCollum and Choreographers Warren Adams and Patricia Wilcox were also in the audience for the launch of the production’s national tour.

It’s the time of year when we show our love and appreciation for the people in our lives who mean a lot to us. However, you may not always be certain of the best way to give back to them. If you know someone who is a theatre lover, but aren’t sure which show they’d like to see or when they’ll be free to see a show, Broadway In Chicago gift certificates are a fantastic idea. You can choose from any upcoming event that BIC has announced, which means if you have a Starcatcher or a Fansie in your household you can ensure they’ll have the capacity to purchase tickets when Peter and the Starcatcher or Newsies goes on sale. Not everyone has the chance to see a show when they want to either, so this is a perfect opportunity to give them something special that will make their holiday!
You can purchase them online HERE or at any theatre box office during operating hours (call (312) 977-1700 for the current week’s hours):
Cadillac Palace Theatre
151 W. Randolph
24 W. Randolph
Bank of America Theatre
18 W. Monroe
175 E. Chestnut
You can easily take care of gifts for fans of Broadway, theatre and the arts this holiday season. They’re also a great idea for any special occasion throughout the year.
Come visit us to hear all the latest gossip and behind the scenes information. We’ll have some BIC-ers chatting during the week, and on Fridays, a guest blogger – could be a cast member of a show, a show producer, a box office agent telling you all the inside tips on getting the best seat in the house without paying the highest price or even our public relations team gabbing on what it’s like to take cast members on interviews and public appearances. We hope to see you at the theatre very soon!
