Chicago Theatre Week
Join us for a reimagined Chicago Theatre Week, taking place now through March 7, 2021.
We invite you to take time to learn about, engage with, and support Chicago area theatre companies. Scroll down to explore over 100 theatre spotlights.
LEARN: Discover a new theatre company
To truly fall in love with Chicago, you must experience our theatre. This is where the city bares its fearless soul. While the shutdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has been especially hard on the theatre community, theatres are still finding ways to entertain audiences while also planning and working towards reopening. Browse the 100+ theatres in the list below – see what’s new at your favorites and check out one you’ve never heard of before.
ENGAGE: Experience a virtual show from your home
Many of our theatres are continuing to keep the spirit of Chicago theatre alive through connecting virtually with you through online performances, classes, and other programs. In the list below, select a virtual event (or two!) to watch during or after CTW. Please note that there are no set CTW ticket discounts like in past years. The featured content may be free or paid.
SUPPORT: Donate $15 or $30 to support a local theatre
Typically during Chicago Theatre Week, value-priced theatre tickets are offered for $15 or $30. If you are so inclined, please consider continuing the celebration of Chicago theatre and making a donation in that amount to support some of your favorite organizations.
We are going to miss seeing you at our theatres this Chicago Theatre Week! We cannot wait to welcome you back in-person. Until then, we hope that you will take this opportunity to connect with the Chicago theatre community in a new way.
