Chicago's Fine Arts Building, 410 S. Michigan Ave., launched its new look and a website with centralized ticketing and rental platforms that encompass all of the landmark building's spaces: artists' studios, offices, rehearsal halls and two theatersthe historic Studebaker Theater and Carriage Hall, a contemporary multidisciplinary performance and event space being built in the former Playhouse Theater space.
Spring productions are now on sale for performances at the Studebaker Theater, which reopens in April 2022 with Cindy Williams' one-woman show Me, Myself & Shirley and Chicago Opera Theater's world premiere of Quamino's Map, followed by the world premiere of the new musical Skates in May 2022. Also returning to the Studebaker stage next year are performances from Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestras and Chicago Jazz Orchestra.
Property owner Berger Realty Group, led by Erica Berger, began major renovations of Studebaker Theater and Carriage Hall earlier this year, to enhance the experiences of theatergoers and producing companies at both venues. Renovations to the historic Studebaker will be completed in May 2022, including all-new seating, enhancements and modernization to the theater's AV and grid systems, a state-of-the-art technical booth, updated lobbies and a newly designed VIP lounge on the third floor. The new Carriage Hall venue will open in late 2022, with more details to be announced in the coming months.
