Capone’s is a fun dinner and show with an Italian theme from Chicago’s 1930s gangster era. There is slang starting with your entrance into the speakeasy. Each person who works at Capone’s stays in character for the era which brings the audience into the show as a willing participant where hilarity ensues. Love when everyone is part of the show for a more complete and full experience.
Your experience starts outside with the decoration of the building with characters from the show. It is easy to start to get excited in anticipation of the evening to come. At least for me. Theater is something I love. Fun theater is good for my inner child who wants to escape into joy as much as possible. The evening delivered.
All you can eat Italian based menu with delicious Lasagna, Turkey, Roast Beef, pasta, and salad. Vegetables and other items too many to remember were enough to fill everyone. One trip was enough for me to fill two plates at one time. Dessert comes later which is delivered by your very own gangster waitperson. It would be difficult to not find something you like on the buffet. They even ask if your are vegetarian so they could still deliver you a meal to meet your eating style. There fourteen selections of drink items includes beer, alcohol, soda, tea, and coffee. These are all part of the one entrance price.
The whole show revolves around gangsters and a dance show in the speakeasy. There is probably a story but my interest instead focus on the individual humor and interaction of the actors and staff with each other and the audience. Lots of laughter, lots of funny dry jokes, lots of stereotypical humor of the Chicago 193os circa era. How fun was this? I liked it. Sat with people visiting from Maine who have been before and came back for the humor, food, and fun.
Lots of fun merchandise from tiny little purses to t-shirts with Dollface or Wiseguy, to hats for female and males and many low price items for everyone who wants to take home part of a fun evening in memorabilia.
