Alongside our onstage work, we have been making changes behind the scenes in response to the many conversations we have had over the past year, and the calls for action and change across the theater industry. With this necessary work, we are striving to become the truly equitable, anti-racist institution our mission and values call for, and create a welcoming home for all of our incredible Chicago artists.
