Experience theater in Chicago for just $30 (or less) during Chicago Theatre Week

WGN News Now

CHICAGO – The League of Chicago Theatres is celebrating the decade mark of its Chicago Theatre Week with tickets to some of the area’s biggest stages at reduced prices. Shows at the Goodman Theatre, Mercury Theater Chicago, Marriott Theatre, Briar Street Theatre and Drury Lane Theatre, for example, are giving out tickets for a mere $30. Other stages such as The Second City have $15 tickets while groups like Broken Nose Theatre have shows for even less.

Running February 17 – 27, 2022, the league is tapping into its more than 200 member theaters to offer hundreds of performances across multiple genres and throughout the city and its suburbs. Tickets are already on sale with the full list of offerings on ChooseChicago.com. The return to in-person performances for the 10th annual event is a welcome change over last year’s 100% virtual celebration, however organizers are acknowledging continued challenges.

“While several performance venues have re-opened over the past eight months and more are planning to re-open in 2022, we are well aware of the impacts that COVID-19 continues to have on all of us. We are thrilled to be able to celebrate our 10th annual Chicago Theatre Week and we look forward to seeing you,” organizers said in a statement posted on the event’s website.  “Live theatre has always been an art form that evolves and changes and that is part of the beauty of it.  In fact live theatre is always ‘subject to change.’  Now more than ever as all of our theatres are committed to making the experience of theatre-making and theatre-going as safe as possible, participating shows and dates will be subject to change.”
