Digital Programming FAQ

We know that our upcoming 2020/21 Season is different than past seasons, and want to make sure all of your questions and concerns are addressed. Check out the FAQ below or give our Box Office a call at (773) 753-4472 with any questions you might have and we’ll be happy to get them answered. Our Box Office hours are Monday – Friday, 12pm – 5pm.

How will my experience at Court Theatre change from previous seasons?

Court Theatre is remaining responsive to ongoing guidance surrounding how to keep patrons, artists, and staff members safe during the pandemic. To that end, it is highly likely that Box Office check-in, seating arrangements, and other aspects of your theatregoing experience will be different than you’re used to. We are hard at work crafting safe and appropriate guidelines for live performances and will communicate any changes to you well in advance of our programming resuming in 2021.

What happens if social distancing guidelines further limit attendance for live performances venues?

Although we remain optimistic about the future, in the event of city, state, or university ordinances preventing us from moving forward with programming as planned, we will reach out about any necessary changes in schedule or seating. Theatre & Thought, Deep Dive, Titanic, and Othello are all confirmed for digital streaming and may be experienced from the comfort of your home.

What if I can’t attend on a specific date listed for Theatre & Thought of Deep Dive: Leopoldstadt?

Digital access to recorded seminars and discussions will be available to all ticket holders for our Theatre & Thought series and Deep Dive events.

If I’ve renewed my subscription do I need to register separately for Theatre & Thought or Deep Dive: Leopoldstadt

If you renewed your 5-Play Subscription (or renewed a 4 or 3-Play Subscription and selected Theatre & Thought and/or Deep Dive as part of your subscription), you are automatically registered for all events. You can expect further information via email with your access link and login information closer to the date of the event.

Will I have the same seats?

When we do resume live performances, we expect to be seating only 25% of our normal capacity. As such, your seating location may be affected by social distancing guidelines, although subscribers will be given priority for each in-person performance. We will endeavor to accommodate seating requests and locations whenever possible. 

What if I don’t want to or am undecided about attending in person?

Four of our five events (Theatre & Thought, Deep Dive, Titanic, and Othello ) are all confirmed for digital streaming and may be experienced from the comfort of your home. If you’re not sure about returning to attend live theatre in person but are still interested in renewing your subscription, we will happily hold your seats for future seasons as a subscriber at Court.


Still have questions? Give our Box Office a call at (773) 753-4472 and we’ll be happy to get them answered. Our Box Office hours are Monday – Friday, 12pm – 5pm.
