    Take in Chicago’s vast array of beautiful public art on display 365 days a year. Chicago has become a “sculpture gallery” displaying works by many world-renowned artists. The city’s collection of outdoor sculpture is as distinguished as its world-class architecture. However, public art in Chicago far exceeds sculptures installed in the downtown area. Encompassing all areas of the visual arts, it is exhibited in municipal buildings and neighborhoods citywide. Discover the changing relationships between architecture and sculpture and learn how artists and architects collaborate in creating successful public art.

    Broadway in Chicago Presents Escape to Margaritaville
    7:30 PM | $110
    Broadway In Chicago offers the most exciting shows in Chicago's bustling Downtown Theater District. On the stages of the Oriental Theatre, the Cadillac Palace Theatre, the Bank of America Theatre, the Auditorium Theatre and the Broadway Playhouse, you will discover theater productions direct from Broadway and world premieres of productions destined for Broadway.

    Escape to Margaritaville: More than a musical. It’s a way of life.

    Imagine a place where the sun is hot, the ocean’s warm, and the drinks are as cold as they are plentiful. Welcome to Margaritaville, the island paradise where city folk get away from it all and the locals get into the kind of trouble you can almost always sweet talk your way out of.

    Featuring both original songs and your most-loved Jimmy Buffett classics, this new musical is the story of a part-time bartender, part-time singer, and full-time charmer named Tully who thinks he’s got life all figured out. Until a beautiful career-minded tourist steals his heart and makes him question everything.

    Theater tickets must be picked up at the Palmer House tour desk. Transportation to the Oriental Theater is not included.

    Broadway in Chicago Presents White Christmas
    7:30 PM | $95
    The uplifting story and beloved songs of Bing Crosby' movie White Christmas have been enjoyed by families for generations. Now, you can continue the timeless tradition with your family at this glorious and exciting live production!

    A stage adaptation of the classic film, Irving Berlin's White Christmas tells the story of two showbiz buddies, formerly old war comrades, who are tasked with staging a winter pageant in a picturesque but struggling Vermont inn owned by their old commanding officer - and find their perfect matches in the bargain. Will they be able to pull off the ultimate Christmas miracle and save the show? Well yeah, but in this case the fun is in following them on their marvellous, adventure-filled journey!

    Irving Berlin's White Christmas is a merry and bright Broadway experience full of dancing, laughter and some of the greatest songs ever written including Blue Skies, I Love A Piano, How Deep Is The Ocean and the iconic favorite White Christmas. Seriously recommended if you are lacking the holiday spirit, this should restore you faster than a pumpkin-spiced latte.
