We illuminate the American ideas of freedom, equality, and opportunity in the plays we produce and the communities we serve.

American Blues Theater is the premier American theater producing visceral theatrical works while engaging its audience in worthwhile missions of local service agencies.

We collaborate with many not-for-profits, such as the Lynn Sage Foundation, Chicago Public Schools, Greater Chicago Food Depository, Illinois Farm Bureau, Misericordia, PAWS Chicago, and the USO.

We believe in cooperative partnerships both on and off-stage.

Our multi-generational and interdisciplined artists have established the second-oldest professional Equity Ensemble theater in Chicago. Our 38-member Esnemble has over 500 combined years of collaboration on stage. As of today, we've received over 125 Joseph Jefferson Awards and nominations that celebrate excellence in Chicago theater. Our artists are honored with Pulitzer Prizes, Academy Awards, Golden Globe Awards, Emmy Awards, and numerous other accolades.

Thank you for joining the American Blues family!
