We Have A Gorgeous New Venue

Hey, Leslie Harris here, and I’m so excited that we’ve got another world-class venue right here in the western suburbs, and I’ve got a special connection to this place.

You probably know the name Ron Onesti from his many years with the Arcada theater in St. Charles. Well, now Ron has taken over the Des Plaines Theater as well. Hey, I grew up in Des Plaines!

Well, the Des Plaines theater looks nothing like it did when I was growing up. The renovation is  fabulous.

Ron and his team have taking great care to make sure every detail is perfect. My husband and I saw Kenny Wayne Shepherd there last Friday night. The seats are comfortable, (and clean!) the sight lines are great, and most importantly, so is the sound. It’s a small, intimate venue, so there’s not a bad seat in the house.

There are also two bars in the lobby, and cup holders in the theater so you can take your beverage in with you.

Ron is also opening a speakeasy upstairs at The Des Plaines Theatre, and it’s a really cool space, with period furniture and details like old timey telephones and phonographs.

Check out some of the many shows that are coming to the Des Plaines Theater. You’ll love this new venue!
