More than a dozen mem­ber the­aters in­clude Stage 773, pop­u­lar for its kids’ in­ter­ac­tive show, Sto­ryTown, as well as dra­mas and mu­si­cals; Laugh Fac­tory for stand-up com­edy; the unique Blue Man Group; Athenaeum The­atre, home to more than 50 per­form­ing arts or­ga­ni­za­tions; and Com­e­dyS­portz, fa­mous for its good-na­tured com­pe­ti­tion com­edy. The Bel­mont The­ater Dis­trict web­site of­ten of­fers dis­counts to mem­ber restau­rants and lodg­ing op-

tions. www.bt­d­chicago.com. 1409 W. Ad­di­son Ave., El: Red, Brown, Pur­ple to Bel­mont
