Year of Chicago Theatre > Year of Chicago Theater Question of the Month
The City of Chicago and the League of Chicago Theatres have designated 2019 as the Year of Chicago Theatre. This citywide, year-long focus on theatre is the first of its kind in the U.S. The initiative includes performances and special events throughout the city while also providing financial grants to theatre projects and more! To truly fall in love with Chicago, you must go to our theatres. This is where the city bares its fearless soul. From Broadway musicals to storefront plays and improv, there’s a seat waiting for you at one of our 200+ theatres! To learn more about the Year of Chicago Theatre and its upcoming activities, please visit Chicago.gov/Theatre.
Throughout the year, we'll be asking questions related to our local theatre scene, and as patrons and practitioners, you're invited to give us YOUR stories and personal reflections. We've partnered with Gather Voices, Inc. to collect short, public-generated video testimonials as part of our year-long marketing campaign.
