Back To Top

In April 2010, Broadway In Chicago added a new location to their family of theaters: the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place. In the 1970s, the building was originally built to house The Drury Lane Theatre and, over the years, went from theatre to movie theatre and back to the legitimate theatre, Drury Lane Water Tower. Prior to its acquisition, Broadway In Chicago presented the year-and-a-half run of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, as well as Shout and Xanadu at the Drury Lane Theatre. After an extensive make-over to give the space an exciting new look, the Broadway Playhouse reopened in September 2010 with a four-night inaugural engagement of An Evening with Sutton Foster. The renovation included a new entrance, lobby re-configuration, as well as a transformation of the interior décor that reflects a more modern look.

This venue, located in the heart of the Magnificent Mile, gives Broadway In Chicago the ability to attract productions better suited for an intimate theatre, and this intimate and unique venue has allowed the company to expand the theatrical experiences offered. Since its grand reopening, the Broadway Playhouse has hosted such hits as the tour premiere of Traces, a newly adapted version of the musical Working, Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron’s international hit Love, Loss and What I Wore, the critically acclaimed Broadway hit Colin Quinn: Long Story Short and the world-wide party musical Rock of Ages.
