Now in its 17th Season, Remy Bumppo Theatre Company's passion for the power of great theatrical language has enriched Chicago's world-class theatre scene. Masterful acting and directing by the company's ensemble of professional artists showcases the wit and wisdom of the world's great playwrights. A hallmark of Remy Bumppo's work is the intimacy of its 150-seat theater, which puts you close to the actors, sweeping you into each play's exhilarating mix of passionate storytelling and invigorating ideas. And the best part is, after the curtain call ends and the houselights go up, you sense the whirring of brain cells around you. The play lives on as the conversation begins.

World-class theater, in your own backyard.
