Turn up at the (virtual) Lookingglass house, flash your pass at the front, and enter…The Secret Passage. TSP is a digital series that reveals a corridor of hidden doors. And behind each door lives an exclusive peek into our process. From mind-expanding artist conversations to first-ever play workshops to archival audio recordings of our former glories to discounts on public Lookingglass events, the perks of the pass will cast you as a true “insider” and a key player in preserving our future.
Diverse. Vibrant. Teeming with stories. This is Chicago. Okay?
Lookingglass Theatre has called Big Shoulders home for over three decades. And as life is a process of perpetual self-discovery, we’re making this moment in the company’s life to find out who we are now. The Chicago Stories initiative will feature COVID-considerate events/expressions that plumb the depth of Chicago’s history and people, while inventing new Chicago traditions to carry us forward…together.
You are the key to sustaining our Company.
The arts are critical at a time like this, and will be even more so when we emerge from this crisis. As a non-profit theatre, Lookingglass relies on your donations –now more than ever– to support our staff and artists, prepare for future seasons, and serve virtual audiences, students, teachers, and the entire community.
We’re still committed to doing our part. But we cannot do it alone.
We’ll be releasing some digital delights via email and social media which we hope will keep Lookingglass close to your heart, until we can gather again in our story castle. Join us as we journey down the digital rabbit hole together…
We at Lookingglass believe that Black Lives Matter and stand with Black, Brown, Indigenous and other marginalized communities exploited by hatred, police brutality, and injustice.
We grieve with the families of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and the countless others mourning the loss of loved ones due to systemic racism and inequality.
White silence is violence. White silence is not an option. As we rebuild, we will not be complicit by remaining silent or passive.
We want our work on stage and in our community to play a role in the necessary dialogue and change that need to occur in order to build a more just society.
