The Year of Chicago Theatre might be coming to an end, but there are still plenty of shows to be seen. In fact, there has never been a better time to catch a show than right now.

For over 100 years the CIBC Theatre has been bringing Broadway to Chicago, and now is no exception. Early birds can catch Irving Berlin’s White Christmas from December 10th to 15th . The ever-popular Hamilton and the cult classic The Phantom of the Opera will continue to play until January 5th. In late January, you can expect to catch the Tony Award winning Once on This Island to grace our city.

The Steppenwolf Theatre has always strived to bring thought provoking and exciting shows to the city. Throughout December the Steppenwolf Theatre will be featuring Lindiwe, a story that shows the lengths that people travel for love, whether that be Chicago or South Africa. Starting on January 23rd , you can catch Bug, the story of a lonely waitress falling for a strange drifter and their decent into madness.
Looking Glass Theatre

At the looking glass theatre, you’re encouraged to step into a new world beyond imagination. Open you mind to what could be and you might find something more powerful than anything in the world: a message. There might not be a more fitting play than the one featured there now, The Steadfast Tin Soldier. This story shows that no matter how we are brought into this world, it is our actions that shape us.
