Broadway In Chicago was created in July 2000 and, over the past 18 years, has grown to be one of the largest commercial touring homes in the country. A Nederlander Company, Broadway In Chicago lights up the Chicago Theater District entertaining well over 1.7 million people annually in five theatres. Broadway In Chicago presents a full range of entertainment, including musicals and plays, on the stages of five of the finest theatres in Chicago’s Loop including the CIBC Theatre, James M. Nederlander Theatre, Cadillac Palace Theatre, the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University and just off the Magnificent Mile, the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place. Broadway In Chicago is best known for attracting pre-Broadway productions, highlights of those include THE PRODUCERS, SPAMALOT, MOVIN’ OUT, THE ADDAMS FAMILY, KINKY BOOTS and ON YOUR FEET, as well as long-run engagements including WICKED, Disney’s THE LION KING, THE BOOK OF MORMON, and HAMILTON to name a few.
In the words of Mayor Rahm Emanuel, “Broadway In Chicago, for well over a decade, has established itself as a leader in its field and is an integral part of our cultural landscape. The Broadway blockbusters, pre-Broadway engagements and long-run hits keep coming, serving to increase tourism, employ thousands and enhance the broad range of theater this city has to offer.”
