American Blues Theater is a dynamic force in Chicago and partnering with groups such as The Illinois Labor History Society is a marvelous way to build more diverse audiences and theater participation—an example of the importance of connecting culture, art, history and politics into a holistic, aesthetic experience.

American Blues Theater donates proceeds from their Pink Previews to support our quest to find a cure for breast cancer. We are so grateful for the recognition and support this program provides.  The entire troupe’s talent and creativity is only matched by its generosity.
