Here we go! It's time for the next installment of El Circo Cheapo Cabaret--Chicago's greatest cheap date-recession-busting idea. If your goal is to save money and have more fun, we'll help you do both. For only a few drinks worth of dollars you can see people hang from fragile looking things from their toes, ladies shake their hips, crazy people walk on glass, and more!

Once the show is sold out, it is sold out. There are no more tickets available, even if you email or call us. We don't do refunds and we don't do exchanges, so check that you are buying the right day and showtime and ticket level BEFORE you finalize your purchase. Thank you for your understanding.

ATTENTION!!!! ATTENTION!!!! July's show is JULY 12...the second Saturday of the month, not the first. We cannot compete with America's birthday, we don't even try. So, come see us on July 12!!!

Question: Hi Shayna, I have young friends who I would like to bring tonight... tickets for the 7pm show are sold out... how un-kid-friendly is the 10pm show... and/or if we show up at the door at 7pm and somebody else doesn't show up can we get in? Thanks! Claudia
Answer: Hi! Due to my own error, ticket sales ended early. I have fixed it, and tickets are now available, so go grab em! FYI- the 10 pm show is for 18 and over only. Thanks!
Question: non-smoking: no? You allow smoking?
Answer: No, smoking is not allowed.
Question: is photography allowed?
Answer: Yes, but no flash, and please share your photos with us.
Question: Hello Shayna, I see that Sales Ended for the 10pm show on Nov. 5th, does that also mean Sold Out or can tickets be purchased at the door?
Answer: Yes, it's sold out. You can still get tickets for the 7PM show...
Question: Hey Shayna. Is it quite picnic seating if I buy tickets to the 7:00 show? I'd like to have some drinks, but I don't want to be "inappropriate" at the kid's show...
Answer: It is fine to BYOB at the 7PM show.
Question: is this event wheelchair accessible?
Answer: It's almost. There are about 6 stairs that you need to tackle before the elevator. We are happy to send people out to assist. We deeply appologize for this...we are as shocked as anyone that a city funded building isn't ADA compliant. But, like I said, we are happy to assist you.
Question: Is there parking at the venue or garages nearby?
Answer: There is ample free street parking.
Question: I thought El Circo Cheapo was closing shop... is this not true? Will there be an August show?
Answer: We will be having a show! We aren't closing shop...that's crazy talk! We are looking for a less terribly hot location for August and will post as soon as we find one.
