Red Theater's "radical accessibility" has made us the "HBO for d/Deaf and/or disabled audiences and actors."
Our mission statement is to honor all audiences by asking dangerous questions theatrically.
While winning awards for our quality, we've also produced three productions with #DeafTalent, and every production in our current season features a disabled actor.
Our #FreeTheater initiative and commitment to Accessibility in every production lowers the barrier for nontraditional audiences to see new works that challenge the status quo. Red Theater produces FREE captioned and Touch Tour performances in every production.
We curate the Chicago Storefront Interpreter Database to help other companies find ASL Interpreters eager to help make Chicago theater more accessible to everyone.
We also produce the Unified Chicago Accessibility Auditions for Actors who are d/Deaf and/or Disabled every year!
