The Playhouse inhabits two venues: our flagship location on Irving Park Rd. and a theater space in the South Loop's Motor Row district.
Our flagship venue, which opened in March 2015 with the Playhouse's inaugural production, is a notably contemporary space: fun yet refined, featuring a sophisticated bar, plush seating, and post-show entertainment. It's also entirely flexible, meaning each and every show will feature a brand new seating arrangement. Subscribers and other return guests will be able to enjoy an entirely new setup with each visit to our space. The Playhouse's flagship location was designed by famed theater architect John Morris, AIA, whose distinguished career includes work with Steppenwolf Theatre Company, Lookingglass Theatre at Chicago Water Tower Pumping Station, the Beverly Art Center, Black Ensemble Theater, and Raven Theatre.
Windy City Playhouse South will open in January 2019 with the transfer of SOUTHERN GOTHIC. Located in the heart of the South Loop's Motor Row District, this second venue is part of the cultural and entertainment expansion of the neighborhood, which also includes the new Wintrust Arena, the first Chicago location of LIPS Dinner Theater, and numerous restaurants and eateries.
