Chicago Theatre Week was such a success last year that it’s coming back with more shows and more days.
Coming back for its third year, Chicago Theatre Week celebrates Chicago’s rich theater tradition and makes it accessible to everyone with local theaters offering deeply discounted tickets. With more than 100 productions, theater fans of all genres and all formats will be able to find more than one great production to see.
Fans of classics won’t want to miss “Waiting for Godot” at the Court Theatre, “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” from the Roosevelt University Chicago College of Performing Arts, or “The Importance of Being Earnest” from the ShawChicago Theater. Musical and performing arts fans should catch “First Wives Club” from Broadway in Chicago, “Million Dollar Quartet” at the Apollo Theater, or—for a little change of pace—”Unique Voices” from the The Joffrey Ballet. If you want to give the kids some theater experience take them to see “James and the Giant Peach” at Filament Theatre or “Lions In Illyria” at the Lifeline Theatre. However, everyone should find time to see “Airline Highway” at the Steppenwolf Theatre Company as this captivating drama will end its run soon and then head to Broadway.
Chicago Theatre Week runs from Feb. 12 – 22 at various locations throughout the city. Tickets range from $15 – $30, or sometimes even less. For a full schedule visit choosechicago.com/things-to-do/arts-culture-and-entertainment/chicago-theatre-week.
