Next Theatre Company Closes - November 10, 2014

After 34 years of creating art in the Evanston community, Next Theatre Company has closed its doors as of Monday, November 10, 2014.

It was an incredibly difficult decision to make, and we did so keeping the community, our patrons, and our artists at the forefront of our minds.

Next has always been committed to the safety and integrity of the artists and the art they create. After much debate, we came to the conclusion that we could not reliably fulfill that commitment through the remainder of the season.

We have been an incredibly proud member of this community and cannot thank you enough for your patronage. It has been an honor operating as Evanston’s premier and only Equity theatre, and hold our memories here incredibly dear.

If you have any questions concerning ticket sales, subscriptions, our decision, or Next in general, you may contact us at Next@NextTheatre.org.

Thank you for your years of support, and we look forward to serving you as artists throughout Chicago’s thriving theatre community.
