The largest building in the whole United States when it first opened, Chicago's Auditorium Building was designed by Danmark Adler and 'father of the skyscraper' Louis Sullivan. The building's imposing, bulky facade is offset by the theatre's dazzling interior of gold-leafed arches and wall mosaics. It's currently home to the legendary Joffrey Ballet company and also plays host to hundreds of concerts and comedy shows every year.
