Another Chicago Theatre Set to Close Its Doors | Playbill

News Another Chicago Theatre Set to Close Its Doors Chicago's Signal Ensemble will close its doors after a 13-season history, according to local news source The Sun Times. The news follows last month's announcement that the celebrated Mary-Arrchie Theatre would also close for business after 30 years.

The Sun Times published a joint statement by co-artistic directors Ronan Marra and Joseph Stearns that reads: "This decision has come after some hard looks at the logistics of our operations, the growth of individual careers and the changing state of our ensemble." "It’s important for us to maintain the commitment to the artistry and quality of production that marks our stage," it continued. "We feel it’s best to end our run while we still feel we are capable of providing this to our audience. Simply put, it’s time to move on for us, and we’re putting every bit of passion and craftsmanship into this, our final season."

The company will still go ahead with the presentation of its upcoming scheduled productions: the U.S. premiere of Nicolas Billon’s The Butcher and the Chicago premiere of Heidi Schreck's The Consultant, which is scheduled to run Jan. 21-Feb. 20, 2016.
