Windy City Weekend

This past year has been one of the most fulfilling of my career so far. It has been both a joy and an honor to work alongside associate Chicago editor Gabriela Furtado Coutinho and the rest of the American Theatre staff to, for the first time, bring dedicated Chicago and Midwest coverage to the magazine. Though we look forward to continuing that coverage, it still feels like it’s all been leading up to this: The nonprofit theatre field gathering in Chicago, June 20-22, for Theatre Communications Group’s annual conference, where the plenaries include a chat with author James Rhee and a closing roundtable about the legacy of Lorraine Hansberry, curated by Tarell Alvin McCraney.

This is the landing page for American Theatre‘s full reporting, which will include coverage from the conference as well as some introductory articles from local journalists, introducing the city’s arts scene to those who might be unfamiliar with our outstanding theatre town. As you join us for the 2024 conference, or explore a future visit to Chicago, I hope these insights can help guide your journey. It’s a big city with a lot to see. Let us help you find a place to start!
