From joy to heartache and every feeling in between, Chicago theatre tells stories that evoke big emotions. Stories that take risks, inspire awe, ask tough questions – and dare audiences to do the same. From musicals to plays to comedy, theatre is for everyone in Chicago. Chicago Theatre Week is a celebration of the stories we share.
Presented by the League of Chicago Theatres in partnership with Choose Chicago, the eighth annual Chicago Theatre Week took place February 13-23, 2020. Theatres across Chicago offered $15 or $30 value-priced tickets to CTW performances, and thousands of residents and visitors took advantage of the opportunity to sample the extraordinary range of theatrical offerings throughout the Chicago area.
