Policies for September 29, 2021 – December 31, 2021
The health and safety of our audience, artists, staff, and community are of utmost importance as we return to live, in-person performances. We hope these protocols, developed in consultation with public health guidance and Chicago’s performing arts sector, offer additional layers of protection and reduce the risk of COVID-19.
We anticipate maintaining these protocols through December 31, 2021 or until such time prevailing medical guidance allows for a relaxation of certain policies. Please revisit this page prior to your scheduled performance for the latest protocols. Send any questions to BoxOffice@AmericanBluesTheater.com or call (773) 654-3103.
