The 2019 Year of Chicago Theatre


"To truly fall in love with Chicago, you must go to our theaters."


There's no other theatre quite like Chicago Theatre. It's where Chicago bares its fearless soul. From Broadway musicals to storefront plays and improv, the energy of the city comes alive.


The city of Chicago has designated 2019 the “Year of Chicago Theatre.” This citywide, year-long focus on theatre is the first of its kind in the U.S. The Year of Chicago Theatre follows the success of 2017 and 2018 initiatives celebrating Chicago’s public art and its creative youth. Its mission is to make 2019 a year in which the city of Chicago emphasizes the prominence of its expansive and innovative theatre industry.


Through billboards, street pole banners, trash cans, CTA posters, and more, we blanketed the city with bold design and beautiful theatre imagery.
