We are “The City That Works.”
Chicago earned that impressive moniker during the tenure of Mayor Richard J. Daley. While it originally referred to the powerful Daley political machine, the nickname has stuck. With 250 theatre companies, ranging from 50-seat storefronts to large institutions that produce seasons on multiple stages, Chicago theatre is a City-Within-The City That Works.
The 2018/19 season has seen new theatre spaces under construction, new companies forming, expansion of programming within existing theatres, changes in artistic leadership, devising work created by collectives, collaborations and co-productions between companies…and three different adaptations of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
