Located in quiet (and this is not a compliment) downtown Waukegan, Genesee Theatre is one of many restored grand theatres in suburban Chicago. Mostly featuring smaller traveling music and comedy performers and low budget theatre companies, the Genesee’s offers nice, but not great, evening entertainment. Unfortunately downtown Waukegan offers few companion options (bars, restaurants, clubs) so do a little research in advance.
The theatre is about 41 miles/1 hour, 4 minutes by car from downtown Chicago. The Metra Waukegan Station is about 0.5 miles away.
