Feb. 13 – 23, 2020

Choose from 100+ theatre performances with tickets for just $15 and $30 (or less!) during Chicago Theatre Week.

From joy to heartache and every feeling in between, Chicago theatre tells stories that evoke big emotions. Stories that take risks, inspire awe, ask tough questions – and dare audiences to do the same. From musicals to plays to comedy, theatre is for everyone in Chicago. Chicago Theatre Week is a celebration of the stories we share.

Presented by the League of Chicago Theatres in partnership with Choose Chicago, the 8th annual Chicago Theatre Week will take place Feb. 13 – 23, 2020. Theatres across Chicago will offer $15 or $30 value-priced tickets to CTW performances. Save the date for this February and don’t miss the opportunity to sample the extraordinary range of theatrical offerings throughout the Chicago area.
