The Playground Theater in Northalsted (AKA Boystown) is an artist-led comedy theater. Our mission is to provide a home for comedians to grow as performers, writers, directors, and producers. We are committed to entertaining audiences with successful shows that reflect our core values: fun, freedom, and opportunity. The Playground Theater, founded in 1997, remains the only continuously operating non-profit theater in Chicago dedicated to an art form invented in Chicago – Modern Theatrical Improvisation.
Northalsted Business Alliance is the chamber of commerce working to enhance the economic vitality and quality of life in our district through programming, services, and events that celebrate our LGBTQ+ history, promote tourism and foster a welcoming, safe community for all.
