Broadway In Chicago looks forward to October 5 when they reopen their theatres. In addition to planning the return of fabulous Broadway shows, their vaccinated staff has been working diligently to ensure that the return to their theatres will be safe and inviting. Broadway In Chicago has enhanced the air handling and filtration throughout the theatres, incorporated new sanitation technologies, and has reduced all touchpoints including initiating mobile ticketing and arranging for mobile Playbills to be available.

Their theatres will operate at 100% capacity; as such, staff and audience will be required to wear masks just as they are required for public transportation. Additional requirements may be considered and added, such as proof of vaccination for those 12 and older. As they are not opening our doors until October 5, Broadway In Chicago will continue to evaluate all protocols to conform to all Federal, State, and Local requirements and follow changing rules and guidelines as they evolve for the safety of our patrons.
