gglasspass Memberships

See yourself here, Chicago. In the Lookingglass.

A partnership with one of this city’s leading Black theatre companies. A homegrown holiday hearth-warmer. Two original CHI-made works each featuring unconventional central characters. A twirl around five extraordinary homespun districts (from Englewood to Edgewater to Avalon Park and more). And a transcendent summer sunset ritual that draws us all back waterside.

Go deeper into the Lookingglass folds. Foster a more meaningful relationship with us and the community. Become a member and see yourself at Lookingglass.

Those who donate $1,000+ receive two 3-play anytime gglasspass memberships.
