American Theater Company

American Theater Company was founded in July 1985 as American Blues Theatre, a company dedicated to exploring, nurturing, and developing theater that addressed and affected the real working-class people of Chicago. From 1986 to 1993, American Blues Theatre produced such critically acclaimed productions as "The Hairy Ape," Rick Cleveland's "Bad Moon and Monsters" and "Monsters II."

Its permanent home in North Center was established in 1993. The intimate, 134-seat theater has showcased notable works such as "On the Waterfront," the world premiere of "The Flight of the Phoenix" and "Speech & Debate."
