Chicago Theatre Week

Chicago Theatre Week is a celebration of Chicago’s world-class theatre scene. Presented by the League of Chicago Theatres in partnership with Choose Chicago, the sixth annual Chicago Theatre Week took place February 8-18, 2018. Theatres across Chicago offered $15 or $30 value-priced tickets to performances throughout the week, and thousands of residents and visitors took advantage of the opportunity to sample the extraordinary range of theatrical offerings throughout Chicago.

The annual theatre event will return in February 2019 — Subscribe to the Theatre Week email list or follow @ChicagoPlays on Twitter for updates and announcements.
