The Storefront Project asks six Chicago-based directors to each choose a text—not written for theater—and devise a new project, tailor-made for MCA Chicago and Prop Thtr—a major downtown institution and a scrappy Avondale theater. Two weekends of shows highlight the innovations that are possible when directors experiment with making theater under shifting circumstances. Each translating the same project from the MCA’s theater and public spaces to the distinct industrial theaters and alcoves of the Prop Thtr, the directors demonstrate Chicago theater’s uncanny ability to pop up anywhere.

Program A features directors Sydney Chatman, Coya Paz, and Denise Serna.
