Prop Theatre is a Golden Nugget of cutting edge theatre in the U.S. I have been to many off_broadway shows in New York, and they are "Trash" compared to this one in Chicago. The Quality, the Artistry, and the Abiance will blow you away! Enjoy! More...

The Prop Thtr is always an inviting and fun theater. I attempt to see the Beast Women shows on select Saturday nights semi-regularly. Would definitely recommend checking out Beast Women or any show here! More...

Terrific theater. Such creative energy of performers. I appreciate the ways the playwrights make many levels of meaning while surprising me with what theater can be.

Go see their current show, “ To Unfortunate to Travel”. The theater is a small but cozy space which allows the actors to interact with the audience. Apart from being very interactive it was also provocative to the mind and leaves you with a lot of ideas to think about. You can also enjoy beer and cider while you watch the show or be lucky enough to win a free beer. More...

I've only been there for one show ("Bipolar B**ch"), but that show was amazing.

100% New Works, and a mission to foster new workers. Always inclusive pay what you can ticket prices, even if it keeps the budgets shoe-string. 30 years of experience. Some exceptional artists, and some exceptional audiences, who deal in more than appearances. A human effort, imperfect but steadfast in perfect values. More...

Went here to see a Beast Women Show. It's a smaller more intimate theater. Definitely plan on going back.

I love this little theater. Talk about intimate-you are right there, practically in the the play. We have seen a number of interesting performances at PropTheater.

Fine Artists; Fine Americans! A fan since 1980. Artistic associate from time to time: Lord Buckley in "The Hip Messiah," Dutch in "Reagan: Dementia In Absentia." Made the masks for "Embedded."

Great performance! Folk singer sang too many songs and her prep time was too long. Connors has a good voice, much better than with his band.

Prop Thtr is an intimate space that produces exceptional avant-garde works like Cabaret Proped music & variety! And ecclectic shows by Factory Theater, Beast Girls & more. Great threatre space, all good seats and decent street parking too. You'll love it! More...

I went to see "Alone, with Friends" which is an excellent play! I enjoyed the theatre. It's big and yet simple in design; however, there was no one at the coffee/beverage bar. The fact that there is one implies that beverages are sold and with no one there selling beverages, it was a disappointment.

I've seen several works here, and I have enjoyed each one more than the next! Serious new dramas; comedy reviews; political satire - all have been well-done, with marvelous acting and staging. As a NW suburbanite, it's an easy ride, too (with free on-street parking!) More...

I'm currently performing in the sold out run of Surging Films and Theatrics production of #AmericanIdiot and can easily say that Prop Thtr is one of my favorite venues in the city. Everyone I have encountered at Prop has been incredibly kind and professional. I look forward to our closing weekend, and to more with Prop Thtr. Thank you! More...

Prop Thtr is one of the most wonderful venues I've ever come across or worked with in Chicago. Not only an amazing and unique space, but incredibly helpful and flexible director and staff. Looking forward to returning as a performer and audience member! More...

The entrance is a little hidden but we'll worth the trip for the magic inside. I attended a plat in the small theater in the front. It was cosy and the production I saw was excellent. If you want to see a play but not pay Broadway prices this is a place to begin your search. More...

The limited seating and small venue space pretty much guarantees a good view from every seat. A great, low-key venue to see off-beat and interesting performances. The seating is a bit crowded, at least it was for the last few performances I attended, but I'll trade plush seating for an unobstructed view and an intimate, immersive theater experience. More...
