A Nederlander Company, Broadway In Chicago lights up the Chicago Theater District entertaining well over 1.7 million people annually.

Broadway In Chicago is best known for attracting pre-Broadway productions, highlights of those include The Producers, Spamalot, Movin' Out, The Addams Family, Kinky Boots and Big Fish, as well as long-run engagements including Wicked, Disney’s The Lion King, and Billy Elliott the Musical to name a few.
About Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place
In April 2010, Broadway In Chicago added a new location to their family of theaters: the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place. The theatre originally housed The Drury Lane Theatre. Prior to its acquisition, Broadway In Chicago presented the year-and-a-half run of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee at the Playhouse. After an extensive make-over to give the space an exciting new look, the Broadway Playhouse reopened in September 2010 with a four-night inaugural engagement of An Evening with Sutton Foster. The renovation included a new entrance, lobby re-configuration, as well as a transformation of the interior décor that reflects a more modern look. This venue, located in the heart of the Magnificent Mile, gives Broadway In Chicago the ability to attract intimate and unique new plays and theatrical experiences.
