Hot Tix Chicago was put together by The League of Chicago Theatres, a not-for-profit service that offers a half-price discount on Chicago theater tickets to shows at participating theaters and venues. The tickets inventory updates constantly throughout the day (current listings available at Hot Tix locations and on their website), so a little bit of luck is involved in terms of getting tickets to your desired play/show. In my opinion, Hot Tix is better suited for those that want to see a theater performance, not necessarily a particular one. There are lots of quality productions to choose from in Chicago, so that's not a bad way to go.
Hot Tix offers tickets online for almost all of their available shows, and can be purchased at their website. If you want to pick from the entire list of available shows, then you can purchase them directly at one of these two Chicago Hot Tix locations:
- 72 E. Randolph, Chicago (between Michigan and Wabash in the Loop)
The Chicago Tourism Center Site of the Stitching Salon
- 163 E. Pearson, Chicago (just east of Michigan Avenue across from the historic Water Tower)
Water Works Visitor Center
You should note that all sales are final. Online purchases will be available for pickup at the specified theater's will call/box office. Confirmation number, photo ID, and credit card used for purchase will need to be presented for verification.
