About the organizer

Organized by
The Newport Theater

The Newport Theater is a 125-seat independent theater located in the heart of the Wrigleyville neighborhood in Chicago, IL. The Newport Theater hosts artist-produced burlesque, drag, comedy, and variety events.

In the age of Covid, The Newport has shifted to trying to provide resources for artists to help create digital content, including Newport Studio, a multi-camera video editing/production service with same-day edited footage provided to artists through the use of Sling Studio. Additionally, in December of 2020, The Newport Theater unveiled the Newport Virtual Venue (created by QueerCoded).
