TitleMcVicker's Theatre
CreatorBaker, Chicago
DescriptionFrom text: "McVicker's Theatre is one of the finest structures of the kind in the country. It is situated on Madison street, between State and Dearborn streets. Its cost was over $75, 000; and will accommodate about 2, 000 people. The exterior, of which an engraving is presented on another page, presents a handsome front on Madison street. The interior arrangements are most complete and admirable. The seats are handsomely furnished, easy, and comfortable, affording an excellent view of the stage from all parts of the house. The stage is of an immense size, allowing the production of the spectacular drama on a scale of magnitude and magnificence that can no where be excelled."
