Free Street Chicago
At Free Street, we work hard to be funny, joyful, and welcoming. But we have to tell you something serious. Most theater in Chicago isn’t accessible to most people in Chicago. It’s expensive. It’s mostly located on the Northside. And it doesn’t reflect Chicago communities on stage or include them in the production process. That’s why Free Street has spent the past 50 years working to make theater that challenges our city’s racial and economic segregation. We believe that theater matters, and if it matters, we should find ways to make it accessible and inviting to as many people as possible.
