We continue to expand our programming with new series like 'Laughtrax,' which will bring the best up-and-coming comedians from across the country, presented in the cozy, club-like UpStage space for an up-close-and-personal audience experience.
"Michael Feinstein, the undisputed 'Ambassador of the Great American Songbook,' will perform on the HARMAN Stage in October, kicking off our popular Songbook Cabaret Series, offering the very best in jazz and cabaret performers direct from New York City in the intimate UpStage space. We also have great date night shows like 'Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus' and the hilarious improv group Chicago City Limits. It's such an exciting time at the Palace! "
