About the Studebaker Theater
A jewel of Chicago theater since 1898, the Studebaker Theater first emerged as a music and opera hall, hosting a variety of acts and performers. Situated where the Studebaker Carriage Company once held its carriage showroom, the theater sat 1,550 people and featured classical music, opera, and vaudeville performances, as well as resident companies such as the Castle Square Opera Company. In 1910, the Studebaker hosted a sold-out two-week farewell engagement with the famed French actress Sarah Bernhardt.
In 2014, work began to restore the Studebaker Theater, and it reopened for occasional live performances in 2015. In 2021, a major multi-million dollar renovation began, bringing all-new seating, a two-level production booth, state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems, and more to the Studebaker. The renovation was formally completed in 2022. since its grand reopening in 2022, the Studebaker has been home to NPR’S “Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!”, and has featured performances from the Chicago International Puppet Theater Festival, the Chicago Opera Theater, the Chicago Repertory Ballet, the Chicago Jazz Orchestra, as well as new musicals and more.
