Winner of American Theatre Wing's prestigious National Theatre Company Award, American Blues Theater is a premier arts organization with an intimate environment that patrons, artists, and all Chicagoans call home.  American Blues Theater explores the American identity through the plays it produces and communities it serves. American Blues follows three guiding values both on and off its stages - to be accessible, responsible, and true.

All proceeds of GutterBall go towards artists' fees and our free arts education program in CPS.
