Star Plaza Theatre
Location: 8001 Delaware Place, Merrillville
No question that Star Plaza Theatre in Merrillville is popular for big-name concerts, but its versatile stage has also brought Broadway plays to the Northwest Indiana Region. The theater’s convenient location is certainly a draw, but theater enthusiasts and newcomers alike love that the farthest seat in this auditorium is only 120 feet from the stage thrust.
That and the intimate atmosphere make for a theater experience that’s at once friendly and exciting. Visitors to the area attending performances at the Star Plaza will have a brand-new hotel for overnight or longer stays. The current Radisson will be razed to make way for a new hotel, expected to open in late 2018.
