  • Annoyance Theater
    It all started with a Halloween show. Mick Napier and a few of his friends dreamt up a cheekily winking sendup of the slasher genre in 1987, and by the time the lights dimmed on the blood- and pudding-splattered stage, they had received a standing ovation. Inspired by the production's success, the group decided to establish an ensemble that embraced the uncensored and subversive—and The Annoyance Theatre was born. The company has staged more than 100 original plays and musicals since its founding, including The Real Live Brady Bunch, the long-running Coed Prison Sluts, and an annual re-mount of that first fortuitous show, now appropriately known as Splatter Theater. The Annoyance celebrates the impromptu art of improvisation as well, hosting frequent long-form sets that highlight audience interaction and completely blank scripts. This anything-goes approach to material both rehearsed and off-the-cuff has won the theater plenty of fans: the company trains aspiring comedians in both Chicago and New York, and recently opened a sparkling new venue thanks to community donations.

  • Auditorium Theatre
    Four Things to Know About the Auditorium Theatre Built in 1889 by the famous architectural firm Adler and Sullivan, the Auditorium Theatre once reigned as one of Chicago's finest playhouses. Today, the National Registered Landmark belongs to Roosevelt University, and still enjoys life as an active theater and music venue. Restorations in 1967 and 2002 preserved its gold ceilings, eye-popping detail, and pin-drop acoustics, giving a new generation of Chicagoans a chance to commune with the city's history. Take your eyes off the stage and read on for the marvels surrounding this classic theatre: It’s a portrait from an architecture as a young man. Adler and Sullivan tapped none other than a young Frank Lloyd Wright as draftsman. President Grover Washington, meanwhile, came to Chicago to lay the cornerstone. The theatre had the first ever air-conditioning unit. By modern standards, the 15 pounds of ice per day it used to cool to interiors seems a bit passe. But at the time, this was the first air-conditioning ever and a marvel of engineering. American luminaries from all fields graced its stages. In 1921, The Auditorium Theatre hosted Chicago’s first ever live radio broadcast—a performance of Puccini's classic Madame Butterfly. Other momentous event at the theatre include concerts by Jimi Hendrix and Frank Sinatra, as well speeches by Booker T. Washington and President Theodore Roosevelt, who delivered his Armageddon speech from the Auditorium’s stage. The gilded ceilings are still made of gold. Although its doors were shuttered for years, the theater still boasts the same arched ceilings covered in 24-karat gold-leaf that once wowed Gilded Age audiences.

  • Beverly Arts Center
    Art. Education. Community. Non-Profit. These four words succinctly sum up the mission of Beverly Art Center, a cultural hub in the historic Beverly Hills, Morgan Park neighborhood. The heart of the member-supported center is the 400-seat Main Stage theater, which hosts plays, dance recitals, and concerts. But the venue is equally dedicated to education, inviting visitors to immerse themselves in ceramics and film classes at the School of the Arts or attend literary events with actual authors instead of just their dust jacket photos. A spacious art gallery hosts rotating exhibitions of contemporary works by both national and regional artists.
