Protecting audiences and actors

We are taking the following steps to support safe attendance for artists, staff and audience during your visit.

  • Everyone (including audience members) at Theater Wit is required to be vaccincated to enter the building.
    • Each audience member must show proof of vaccination and state ID at the door for admittance.
    • Please present your vaccination card (electronic photos and copies are acceptable) and state ID when you arrive. Only fully vaccinated members of the public may be admitted. Negative PCR and rapid test results are not valid for admittance.
    • Patrons with medical or religious exemptions may be admitted but must contact the box office a minimum of 48 hours before the performance for additional review and guidance. Masks are required for medical and religious exemptions.
    • If you forget proof of vaccination, we will reschedule your tickets at no charge.
  • Free Exchanges due to illness
    • If you are feeling unwell, please do not attend :)
    • Contact our box office on the day of performance and we will reschedule your ticket at no charge.
  • Masking is required for all audience members while Cook County is in MEDIUM risk level (according to the CDC) for the safety of the performers. When the risk level is lowered, we will relax the masking policy accordingly.
  • Our upgraded HVAC systems increase the number of air exchanges to remove aerosolized droplets and provide updated filtering to meet CDC and city standards.
  • On behalf of the producers, staff and performers, we issue a heartfelt thank you to our audiences who make these generous accomodations for the health of all.

The year of magical thinking tw   mackenzie nilsen

by Joan Didion, directed by Gabrielle Randle-Bent
starring Remy Bumppo Core Ensemble Member Annabel Armour
Theater Three
Remy Bumppo Theatre Company
Resident Company

An adaptation of her own Pulitzer-prize nominated book, celebrated essayist Joan Didion writes a raw, stupefyingly personal account of loss. Bracingly lucid and spellbindingly poetic, The Year of Magical Thinking is an honest and unsparing depiction of mourning and a pain that must be looked at to be understood.

Running Time: 1 hour 30 minutes with no intermission

[5] Between the Lines performances include a pre-show lecture at 1:30 led by a Chicago luminary who will discuss the themes of the play, the performance at 2:30, and a post show talkback with the artists.
