After eight years of presenting original, ensemble-created works in our West Loop venue, The Building Stage will close for good at the end of April 2013. We're sorry to be closing but we're terribly proud of what we've created since 2005. Most importantly, the relationships we've developed with both Chicago's community of theater artists as well as theater patrons has been incredibly rewarding. We want to thank everyone who has supported the company and venue with their time, money, and attention. We couldn't have done it without you. Before we disappear, we proudly present one final new work: Dawn, Quixote.

The Building Stage is known for adapting and reinventing classic tales, like their 2011 award-winning Moby-Dick. Sticking with tradition for what is to be their final show, the company puts its playful spin on Miguel de Cervantes' Spanish Golden Age masterpiece. In this world-premiere production, the comic adventures of Don Quixote and his squire Sancho are transformed into a personal, poetic exploration of the cost of dreaming.
