Producing theatre costs money. According to the NEA, only 30% of a new theatre’s revenue comes from ticket sales.
With your support we can bring vital and challenging works of art to life in Chicago-and beyond.
Donations will be utilized immediately to help incubate works of emerging talent and place these artists on the road to commercial success.
