COVID-19 Update from Lookingglass Theatre Company

Due to increasing public health concerns surrounding the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and Governor Pritzker and Mayor Lightfoot’s guidance on public gathering and social distancing, all remaining performances of Her Honor Jane Byrne have been canceled. The request to cancel large events takes us through May 1, and we hope that we will be able to share performances beyond then with our audiences.
