The League of Chicago Theatres recognizes the enormous financial burden to theatre workers whose incomes are being adversely impacted by COVID-19. In addition to our Chicago Theatre Workers Relief Fund, we are excited to help support the talented members of Chicago’s local theatre community by drawing attention to their online shops. Shop local and support our theatre makers year-round!
