The theater is hard to find. It's a small theater in the middle of a neighborhood but they use their space very well

About the Ticket Supplier: SiNNERMAN Ensemble, Inc

SiNNERMAN is an ensemble of 10 artists who support and challenge each other. Working with a sense of play, a love for the collaborative process, and a belief in the power and importance of community, they create compelling and evocative theatre. Their inaugural production was “The Incredibly Famous Willy Rivers” in 2007, and critics wrote “there is no question about their acting skills.” And “impressive.” Ambitious graduates of the School at Steppenwolf, the members have worked at such Chicago theatres as Steppenwolf, Lookingglass, Court, The House, Collaboraction, Remy Bumppo, Chicago Dramatists, Uma Productions, Pinebox, The Gift, Second City, and numerous others. At Steppenwolf, the group did an exercise to the Nina Simone song “Sinnerman”. Inspired by the singer’s music, passion and strength, and by the beautiful moment that they shared, they found their name.
