Celebrate the 1920s in Chicago, an era of gangsters, jazz and flappers, during this dinner performance of Tommy Gun’s Garage in the Windy City. This lively, fun-filled show, complete with plenty of crowd interaction, is a sure-fire crowd pleaser.
Choose an evening performance time for your show that fits your schedule. Then head to the theater, located through the “El” train tracks, feeling like you’ve reemerged in the 1920s. The venue is decked out head to toe in period-appropriate decorations, including silent movies, 1920s memorabilia, a replica wall from the infamous St. Valentines Day Massacre, pictures of gangsters and cops and a 1928 Ford Model A.
Start your night watching the show’s cast of “Molls” and “Mugs” dance and sing along to famous period performers like Duke Ellington, Fats Waller, Cole Porter and George Gershwin, all accompanied by music from Chicago’s own Sinfully Orchestra.
As you watch, tuck into a meal of steak, pasta, chicken or fish (see menu in the Itinerary below). Then follow along with “Gloves” and “Vito” for a comedy show that’s sure to delight, complete with lots of song, dance and audience participation.
All of a sudden, your performance will be “raided” by the cops, accompanied by the appropriate sirens and flashing lights. You might even get called up on stage for a hilarious “sobriety test,” administered by Officer Murphy, and get “interviewed” by Vito.
