Court Theatre is excited to announce that we were honored with three awards from Monday night’s 50th Annual Joseph Jefferson Awards. Two actors from productions during our 2017/18 Season were honored, with Court also receiving a special Jeff Award for our commitment to the Chicago theater community for over 50 years!
In September, Angel Ysaguirre joined Court as the new Executive Director. We caught up with Angel to ask him about his plans for Court, his love of the arts, and what he enjoys doing in his spare time.
Critics across Chicagoland highly recommend August Wilson’s RADIO GOLF, with the Chicago Tribune awarding the production four stars and boldly claiming that “'RADIO GOLF was never considered August Wilson's best — then it came to Court Theatre.” See for yourself what the buzz is about; get tickets to Radio Golf.
Court Theatre is thrilled to announce that we received 13 Jeff Award nominations for last season’s productions! Each year, the Joseph Jefferson Awards committee honors outstanding Chicago area theatre and artists.
We are thrilled to announce Angel Ysaguirre as Court Theatre's new Executive Director, beginning September 4th. He will join Charlie Newell, Marilyn F. Vitale Artistic Director, as co-leader of the theatre.
Nicholas Rudall, Court’s beloved Founding Artistic Director, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on June 19th. We all have been inspired and profoundly enriched by Nick's beautiful artistry for decades, and we are indebted to him for the enduring gift of this precious theatre.
