About Windy City Playhouse
“Experience driven. Audience First.” Windy City Playhouse is a professional theater and 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, based on Chicago’s northwest side. Premiering in March of 2015 with a mission to present contemporary, relevant, and approachable art, the Playhouse has quickly become a mainstay of the Chicago theater scene. In 2018, its runaway hit, the immersive SOUTHERN GOTHIC, solidified the Playhouse as *the* Chicago theater for one-of-a-kind audience experiences. In 2019, Windy City Playhouse South opened in the South Loop’s Motor Row district. This second, satellite venue (intended exclusively for the presentation of immersive theatrical experiences) furthered the Playhouse’s goal to make theater reachable all across this great city.
