Once home to the Tony-winning Victory Gardens company, and the legendary Organic Theater Company and Body Politic before it, this facility now serves as a rental house with four theaters of varying sizes. Among the many dependable companies that call it home: Eclipse Theatre (which devotes each of its seasons to a single American playwright), Theatre Seven of Chicago (a young ensemble devoted to Chicago premieres and new works), Remy Bumppo (a dapper and intelligent company that produces high-minded literary classics) and MPAACT (a company of new and nontraditional African-American works).
