Chicago is a legendary theater town, this is the city where improv was born and where local theaters like Steppenwolf, Goodman, and Victory Gardens regularly present nationally acclaimed productions. Every year, Chicago Theatre Week offers the chance to view an exciting range of plays including musicals, comedies, dramas, and improv, at a discount.

Chicago Theatre Week: Tickets $15 and $30
During Chicago Theatre Week, a limited number of value-priced theatre tickets are offered for $15 or $30. You usually have to purchase quickly before in-demand shows are sold out. (Blockbuster hits like Hamilton are rarely available).
Over 100 shows are offering discounted tickets. Some theaters also included additional offers such as post-show discussions, free drinks, and coupons to attend future shows.
How It works
Tickets are limited and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. This offer is only valid at participating theaters and is not valid for previously purchased tickets. The final ticket price may include fees and service charges not listed on the CTW website.
How to Find the Discounts Tickets
Tickets are available for purchase here. You’ll have to select a show and click through until you are given the available discount dates, showtimes, and discount code. Write all this information down before you click through to the site where you’ll actually purchase the tickets since these sites will pull up all available performance dates not just the Theatre Week dates.
