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!!!
Another year, another 12 months of great Chicago theater! 2015 blessed Chicagoland with inspired new works and riveting revivals from a wide range of companies – the largest equity houses to the smallest of the city’s storefronts. Taking into account the 700+ productions that were produced in the Windy City over the last year, here are our reviewer’s picks for the best of the best. Bravo!!
In a theater community as diverse and talented as Chicago’s, every aspect and genre of stage productions can be found throughout the city on a given week. 2015 was no exception to this fact, as one can see from our reviewers’ picks of the year’s greatest and most memorable works.
