Court Theatre’s Production of KING HEDLEY II Wins 3 Jeff Awards

Court Theatre is thrilled to share that we received 3 Jeff Awards for our production of August Wilson’s King Hedley II, directed by Resident Artist Ron OJ Parson, including Best Production, Best Performer in a Principal Role, and Best Performer in a Supporting Role. During such a difficult time for performing arts organizations, this year’s online Jeff Awards ceremony served as a rousing reminder of the powerful role Chicago’s artists and cultural institutions play in our city.

Each year, the Joseph Jefferson Awards committee honors outstanding Chicago area theatres and artists. This achievement continues to reinforce the consistent quality of our artistic contributions to Chicago’s theatre scene.
