Writers Theatre Update

writersIf you have driven through Glencoe lately, on Green Bay Road, in particular, you have been watching the progress on the new Writers Theatre venue. An amazingly modern facility that the North Shore has longed for. For more than 20 years, Writers has  captivated the audiences who have attended their productions with inventive versions of classics and new works, adding small scale musicals to the list in recent years. They have been doing these productions in the theaters in Glencoe- Tudor, which was the Women’s Center at 325 Tudor and at a small shop called Books on Vernon at 664 Vernon Avenue (just down the street).

The new facility will be larger and more state of the art. It will have a smaller studio theater as well, but I understand that Books on Vernon will remain as their intimate space. What a wonderful space it is. For those of you who were able to watch their marvelous “Diary of Anne Frank”, where we felt as if we were in hiding with the cast, it is a space that seats us very close to the action. I must confess, it is one of my favorite theaters. Look for the next opening of “Marjorie Prime” later this month. By the way, this is also a real book store ( remember those?).writerstheatre3

Writers Theatre has a reputation for consistent artistic excellence, innovative educational programming and strong ties to its community. Now, they will also have a facility that will allow them to continue their work and exceed the expectations of those they serve. The theater audiences of Chicago. To keep up with them, visit, where you can see the schedule of productions coming up, learn more about season subscriptions etc. To call their box office located at another spot in Glencoe, 321 Park Avenue, call 847-242-6000.
