NFL Draft at Auditorium kicks Joffrey Ballet’s spring 2015 season into Cadillac Palace

SHARE NFL Draft at Auditorium kicks Joffrey Ballet’s spring 2015 season into Cadillac Palace

The Joffrey Ballet has called the Auditorium Theatre its official home for years, but when the NFL (National Football League) announced earlier this week that it would hold its annual draft at the landmark building from April 30 to May 2, 2015, the pointe shoes got temporarily tossed out in favor of the knee-pads and cleats. Commerce wins out over aesthetics every time.

In brief: The Joffrey Ballet’s New Works program, previously scheduled to run April 22-May 3, 2015 at the Auditorium, will be relocated to the Cadillac Palace Theatre at 151 W. Randolph. Proclaiming that it is “pleased to accommodate the NFL,” the Joffrey has informed its tickets holders of the following:

+ The dates for their performances will not change.

± New tickets for the Cadillac Palace will be mailed to them at least a few weeks prior to the performance.

± Seats comparable to their Auditorium seats will be identified for them.

± The Joffrey will arrange special parking rates for them at a nearby parking garage.

± For any questions about the change (or if ticket holders have not received their tickets in the mail by April 1), patrons should call (312) 386-8905.
