ClassGraphic The Future of Theatre in Chicago: A Panel Discussion
with 4 Artistic Directors Moderated by Chicago Tribune Theatre Critic, Chris Jones
The marquee lights of Chicago theatre shine brightly once again in our post-pandemic world. Theatres throughout the city and suburbs are producing exciting, innovative productions and audiences are filling seats. However, the theatre world in Chicago is changing and faces many opportunities, issues, and challenges — including increasing diversity in programming and casting, attracting younger audiences, and applying lessons learned from the pandemic. Chicago Tribune theater critic Chris Jones will moderate a panel of four artistic directors from theatres of diverse sizes and distinct missions. Join us as B.J. Jones (Northlight), Marti Lyons (Remy Bumppo), Kirsten Fitzgerald (A Red Orchid Theatre), and Tyrone Phillips (Definition) discuss their hopes and visions for the future of theatre in Chicago.
