Introducing an innovative new performance venue coming to Navy Pier.

Announced today: The Yard at Chicago Shakespeare, a forward-thinking new performance venue slated to hold its first performance during the Chicago Shakespeare Theater’s 2017-18 Season.

The Yard will be connected to the existing facility, which currently houses two theaters, through expanded lobbies. The year-round, flexible venue can be configured in a variety of shapes and sizes with audience capacities ranging from 150 to 850, defining the audience – artist relationship to best serve each production.


The Yard at Chicago Shakespeare is integral to Navy Pier's Centennial Vision, a reimagining of the Midwest's most visited leisure destination celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. The new and renovated features are designed to expand Navy Pier's impact and audience, showcasing a vibrant cultural, environmental, educational and recreational landscape.
