Theatrebam Chicago was founded by theatre professionals, educators and alumni from Northwestern University and the Theatre School if DePaul in 1992.

Theatrebam Chicago's mission is to create dynamic theatre productions that attract and engage new and young audiences. We realize our mission by creating new works, reinterpreting familiar texts, and building educational programs.

Our 1992 debut went inside the mind of America's most notorious mass murderer in the one-man show, Manson: Fires in Your City, written and directed by Kyle Hall. Charles Manson's writings, interviews, and testimony from the Tate-LaBianca trials form the backbone of the play which the Chicago Tribune called "a fascinating, truly disquieting, hour-long show ... Hall's performance is filled with chilling masterstrokes."
Other Theatrebam projects include a workshop of Frozen River, a musical based on the Lizzie Bordon trials, The Miss Alphabet City Beauty Pageant and Spelling Bee, and Holiday Spin.
