Near West Theatre has left the building. Many thanks to all who were part of the responsive, appreciative audiences for the nine-show run of Move On!, which closed with a June 29 matinee and a community farewell to the St. Pat’s Club Building, our home of 36 years.

The "red iron" frame is complete at the site of our future home in the Gordon Square Arts District, and roof decking and floor pouring are the latest activities.  For photos and updates on construction and all things Near West Theatre, "like" us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter (@NearWestTheatre) or visit our Social Media page.

We're revamping the inner workings of our website. If you notice that something's amiss or have difficulty using any feature, please call our office at (216) 961-9750 to let us know.  We'll work on it!
