The grandeur of the Chicago Theatre leaves you breathless. The elegant lobby, majestic staircase and beautiful auditorium, with murals above the stage and on the ceiling, are components of â€œthe Wonder Theatre of the World.â€ Now playing is Shear Madness, an enormously popular and hilarious whodunit set in a unisex hair salon that is the scene of a wacky murder. The award-wining comedy is filled with spontaneous humor and is different each performance (until 9/1/2007). 175 N. State St. (312) 462-6363; www.thechicagotheatre.com.
