LOOKING FORWARD: Chicago Shows We're Excited About

Continuing our support of productions that embrace inclusion for artists and audiences, below are shows open or opening soon in Chicago that we feel are moving our community forward. As a staff, we have not necessarily seen all of these shows but are really glad they are happening. We are excited to list shows that offer some or all of the following: - Non-traditional casting - Accessible storytelling - Variety of perspectives on the design and production teams - Playwrights/Directors from underrepresented communities - Diversity in season programming Buy tickets to shows that celebrate inclusion.
