Another year, another 12 months of great theater! 2016 blessed the Windy City with inspired new works and riveting revivals from a wide range of companies – from the largest equity houses and dance companies to the smallest of Chicago’s storefronts. Taking into account the hundreds of productions that we reviewed this past year, here are our picks, in alphabetical order, for the best 10 productions of 2016. Bravo to all!!
Now in its 48th Equity season, the Jeff Awards has been honoring Chicago’s outstanding theatre artists annually since it’s establishment in 1968. The Jeff Awards Committee judged the 158 qualifying productions (opening between August 1, 2015 through July 31, 2016) from 58 producing organizations. Of these, 112 productions were “Jeff Recommended”, which made them eligible for award nominations.
Below you will find a compilation of the distributed awards at the Jeff Award ceremony Monday, August 17. Congrats to all!!!
