CHICAGO: The 44th annual Non-Equity Jeff Awards were held Monday night at the Athenaeum Theatre. The awards celebrate non-union Chicago theatre. The biggest winner of the night was At the Table, created by Broken Nose Theatre, which received four awards.

The emcees for the evening were Alexis J. Roston and Lillian Castillo. Brenda Didier directed, and Jimmy Morehead provided musical direction. John D. Glover, the non-Equity wing chair of the Jeff Awards, produced the event.
