Chicago Plays

Chicago’s vibrant theatre scene thrives thanks to the League of Chicago Theatres, a powerful alliance supporting its members. One of their key initiatives is, a mobile-first website developed by Venture.

This platform aggregates information on over 1,000 theatre productions, giving audiences a one-stop shop to discover Chicago’s diverse offerings. Venture built custom filtering and event management tools to streamline the user experience. Theatre managers can easily enter and update show details, while audiences can discover hidden gems or find familiar favorites with ease.

Both desktop and mobile users benefit from a stunning design that prioritizes speed and showcases the remarkable imagery of Chicago’s theatre productions. This seamless user experience ensures that is the go-to platform for anyone wanting to experience the magic of Chicago theatre.

We are so happy that we chose Drew and the team at Venture for our website redesign. Our organization needed a complete online overhaul involving multiple complex websites. Drew expertly and cheerfully led us step by step through the process of developing each new website to help us better serve our member theatres, patrons, artists and administrators. They kept us on task and on time so we could launch by our deadline and without any issues. The new websites all turned out great, and are now so easy for us to manage and update. Drew continues to be incredibly responsive and supportive and it’s reassuring to know that they’ve always got our back. We highly recommend working with Venture!
