A note from the League of Chicago Theatres:

We are beyond eager to celebrate Chicago Theatre Week 2022 with you. It was our hope that the 10th anniversary of this beloved and highly anticipated event would come with a firm and powerful declaration: theatre is back. And we are back. We are here. And it’s different now.

While several performance venues have re-opened over the past eight months and more are planning to re-open in 2022, we are well aware of the impacts that COVID-19 continues to have on all of us. We are thrilled to be able to celebrate our 10th annual Chicago Theatre Week and we look forward to seeing you.  Live theatre has always been an art form that evolves and changes and that is part of the beauty of it.  In fact live theatre is always “subject to change.”  Now more than ever as all of our theatres are committed to making the experience of theatre-making and theatre-going as safe as possible, participating shows and dates will be subject to change.
