I'm thrilled to welcome Remy Bumppo Theatre as our newest resident company, starting production in October of 2018! I've admired their work since I saw their first production, Night and Day, twenty-odd years ago. Remy Bumppo's mix of contemporary artists with vibrant and poetic classics is a beautiful fit into the building's programming. Theater Wit is now the artistic home to four of Chicago's best Equity companies. Seeing so much talent in these intimate spaces is all I ever hoped for when we opened our doors to resident companies ten years ago. This is going to be an exciting season for Chicago audiences (and our members), Theater Wit, Remy Bumppo, Shattered Globe and About Face and all the other visiting artists
After a 10-week extended run, the Chicago premiere of Sheila Callaghan's brilliant and acidic play has tossed its last frisée. We'll miss this one.
