"Home to literally hundreds of theater companies, Chicago is regarded as one of the best theater scenes in the world. This is the home of improv troupe Second City, which birthed stars John Belushi, Tina Fey, and Amy Poehler, and is the only city in the nation to have five theaters receive regional Tony awards. Chicago theater has a vast array of styles to choose from, ranging from sketch improv to Broadway shows and ensemble-led features. In addition to the flashing marquees and Tony-award winning plays, small independent theaters are tucked into every neighborhood in town, and you can find a performance playing any night of the week.
