Support Transformation


Friends, thank you again for the time and support you’ve allowed us these past six months of transformation. We would not be able to share this exciting news without your patience, belief, and encouragement. And without your generous donations. Thank you! At long last, it’s time to give you THE SCOOP. The hot goss. The haps. As the newly appointed Artistic Director, I could not be more excited to share our vision of the future with you.

We are here. Here in the historic Chicago Waterworks building. A building that survived a great fire. A building whose foundation went on to rebuild and transform. We draw inspiration from these weathered stones, just as we draw inspiration from Chicago, a Phoenix city that constantly emerges from the ashes to create something new. We are here to transform once again. To continue. Onward.

Thank you for your outpouring of support during this period of transformation. We hear you. We see you. And we want you to know that we are still here and have lots to share.

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 believe that our work and our lives are infinitely more complex, rewarding, illuminating, and nearer to truth when we have a wider variety of human experiences in our room, at our table, and on our stage.

We commit ourselves to the following Anti-Racism, Equity, and Inclusion guidelines, which have been developed by a task force of representatives from our Board, Associates Board, Staff and Ensemble.
