Other Chicago theatre companies include Steppenwolf Theatre Company, the Goodman Theatre, and the Victory Gardens Theatre. Of course, Chicago also offers the popular Broadway-style of entertainment. Some of the theatres for this particular genre include Ford Center for the Performing Arts Oriental Theatre, Bank of America Theatre, Cadillac Palace Theatre, Auditorium Building of Roosevelt University, and Drury Lane Theatre Water Park.
