The Bridge is dedicated to producing fresh, provocative and challenging live theatre and performance at popular prices. 


We present challenging, provocative new theatre and performance at popular prices. We are located in Chicago's vibrant Bridgeport neighborhood on the near southwest side. Learn more about The Bridge.


FOLLOWSPOT is The Bridge’s  performance cabaret, coming your way again on April 30. Chicago’s up and coming performance artists appear alongside seasoned veterans in a lively, cabaret atmosphere. Gawk, glare, guffaw and go gaga over the most original visionaries in our fair city. Join us at our next event.


Provocative playwrights, contemporary adaptions of early modern classics, and new works of theatre find a home at The Bridge. For the price of a movie, you’ll thrill to live drama, made by professionals. Coming in March: TWO FROM BRIDGEPORT,  in which Bridgeport residents Audre Budrys and Kestutis Nakas present original solo works featuring our 'hood!
