Oh no! Free Street Theater is in the middle of a website emergency!


The provider hosting our site went out of business without notifying any of its clients. We found out the hard way - when our website disappeared and all of our emails stopped working. The good news is that we are a LIVE THEATER COMPANY and do our best work the old fashioned way - human to human, in a big room with lots of other people. 

We are working hard to get a new website up and running. In the meantime, here are some ways to connect with us:

Help Us Build for the Future

Website or no website, here is what is always true about Free Street:

-We are a multigenerational, multiracial, and multilingual theater company creating/incubating devised and solo performance by underrepresented Chicago artists. 

--We are committed to creating performance by, for, about, with, and in Chicago's diverse communities. 

-We are committed to equity and economic justice. We pay all of our artists and offer all of our programming for free/pay-what-you-can.
