Edgewater Theatre District
Chicago is known nation-wide for its iconic storefront theatre scene – it’s the kind of theatre where you’ll experience knock-your-socks off acting and innovative, jaw-dropping productions from intimate 50-100 seat theatres. With over fifteen theatre companies based in Edgewater, the neighborhood is a hotbed for the kind of theatre that’s put Chicago on the map.
There is no reason not to explore the theatres that are helping to make Edgewater the vibrant, exciting community that it is. The theatres are within walking distance of virtually every home in Edgewater, and ticket prices are extremely reasonable. Whether it’s a play for young audiences, a great date night, or the perfect way to entertain out-of-town guests, Edgewater’s theatre community has something for every occasion!
In 2016, the Edgewater Theatre District, comprised of 22 local theatres, had a huge impact on the small business ecosystem. The District brought an impressive 51,000 people to the neighborhood through their 1,550 performances!
