UPDATE: Some local theater shows have been cancelled or postponed due to coronavirus. Take a look at our updated roster of Chicago event cancellations, and be sure to call ahead if you're unsure.

In the spirit of Chicago’s notoriously unpredictable spring forecast, the local theater scene has a wide array of genres on tap in March. On the docket this month are three shows that promise to whisk audiences back to high school, whether you were on the debate team, ran with (or against) the queen bees, or went out for student government. If thinking back on your teenage years is PTSD-inducing, Carla Ching’s family drama Fast Company brings a thrilling heist to the stage at Jackalope Theatre. You can also tap your toes into spring with three musicals, including one that features American Idol alums Diana DeGarmo and Ace Young. Fight the urge to stay in hibernation and get out to one of the best theaters in Chicago to see these 10 new plays, which hit local stages this month.
