About BoHo Theatre

BoHo Theatre is one of Chicago’s most imaginative storefront theatre companies, bringing bold, intimate theatrical stagings to audiences for 18 years. Our productions examine and celebrate human relationships - focusing on the Bohemian pillars of Truth, Beauty, Freedom, and Love. We nurture emerging talent both through our mainstage productions, our reading series, and through The Next Step Project, a partnership with Northwestern University’s playwriting program, where we workshop and present emerging playwrights’ work through staged readings with professional actors.

We’re at an exciting and pivotal stage in our development, continuing to produce innovative, virtual work but returning to a full in person experience in August 2022 with our World Premiere of the exciting new production of National Merit.

Mission Statement

BoHo Theatre tells stories examining and celebrating human relationships -- focusing on the Bohemian pillars of Truth, Beauty, Freedom, and Love -- using bold, intimate theatrical stagings. Our vision is to create a shared community of artists and patrons in which all members are moved through art to make thoughtful, well-examined, caring relationships the highest priority in their lives.


BoHo’s values are defined by the following guiding Principals:

  • The incorporation of the arts as a whole, including dance, music, visual art, graphic design, and other artistic disciplines.
  • An artistic emphasis on the importance of relationships.
  • Securing, maintaining, and nurturing the artist’s process.
  • An artistic focus on introspection.
  • Storytelling through innovation.

BoHo is committed to fostering and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion. Our company, board of directors, actors, technical staff, and musicians are the most valuable asset we have. The collective sum of their individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities and talent is vital not only to our familial culture but to the excellent work we achieve in theatre.
