16th Street was featured in “Know a Theatre” in American Theatre on February 1, 2015.

“This 49-seat venue in a small suburb west of Chicago serves its neighborhood with new plays at neighborly ticket prices.

BERWYN, ILL.: What we outsiders think of as “Chicago theatre” includes by rights a passel of outliers in nearby Evanston, Skokie, Glen Ellyn, Oak Brook and Berwyn. The last name on that list is where the 8-year-old 16th Street Theater plies its wares, for a small community otherwise unserved by a professional theatre. The emphasis at 16th Street is on new work and affordable tickets, but artistic director Ann Filmer evidently doesn’t skimp on quality: 16th Street was named best emerging theatre by Chicago magazine in 2013.”
