There's never been a better time to visit Windy City Playhouse.


It's not just critics. Your fellow Chicagoans are falling for BECKY SHAW(the play, probably not the woman)... Here are just a few of the rave reviews we've received from audiences like you:

"Witty, timely and well acted."

"Outstanding performances all around!"

"A show to remember!"

"An anchor in Chicago for exciting new productions."

"You'll laugh, you'll learn, and you'll always be on the edge of your seat."

"Combines the best of larger Loop houses and storefront theater."

"If you have never been you should do yourself a big favor and see a show at Windy City Playhouse."

Between the critical darling BECKY SHAW, our new Monday Mixer series, a fresh batch of seasonal cocktails, and the same relaxed vibe you've come to know and love, this fall is full of fun at the Playhouse. We hope you'll join us.
