Fodor's Review

Pause as you enter this neo-Moorish building, built in 1923 for the Shriners (cousins of the Freemasons), and admire the ornate decorative details in the recently restored lobby and theater. City Center's 2,200-seat main stage is perfectly suited for dance and special theatrical events. The Tony Award–honored Encores! series, generally held in spring, revisits musicals of the past in a concert format—an event that has led to shows returning to Broadway, with the long-running Chicago among them. Tickets for City Center's annual Fall for Dance festival sell out quickly.
