Our response to COVID-19

Dear Friends,

Our thoughts are with all of you at this time as many of us are dealing with the impact of COVID-19 on virtually every aspect of our lives. Though we are in this challenging and uncertain time, we want to encourage you to hold on to those things which define our humanity — Faith, Love, and Hope. We will get through this. 

Like many entities, we too have been hard hit by this pandemic and will have to close our season much earlier than we anticipated. The impact of COVID-19 on the arts sector has been particularly devastating. The precautions required to stop the spread of the virus has brought Chicago’s robust cultural and arts life that thrives through community to a seeming halt. The economic implications for artists and arts organizations are dire and the full effect still yet unknown. Even still, many artists and organizations are finding innovative ways in the midst of COVID-19 to bring solace through arts to our communities. 

While we may not have a mainstage production for you to come to this season, we will find ways to come to you. We invite you to stay plugged in to our website and social media platforms for helpful information and resources for this time and forms of creative engagement.

Thank you for the many ways you support us. We will do our best to support you. Please stay safe and healthy.
Be Encouraged,


Olateju Adesida | Artistic Director
