By February, many people will be more than ready to shake off the cold, get out of the house, and have some fun.

So why not spend that time out by enjoying some beloved theatre performances or taking in something completely new?

For the fifth year Chicago Theatre Week is arriving to help relieve that dreaded cabin fever.

The League of Chicago Theatres, in partnership with Choose Chicago, is offering a wide variety of discounted theatre performances for audiences to enjoy.

Set for February 9-19, 2017, over 100 League of Chicago Theatres members will offer deeply discounted performances for $30, $15, or possibly even less, according to the event’s website.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, January 10.

Be sure to stay up to date on all the necessary Theatre Week info by subscribing to the Theatre Week newsletter or following @ChicagoPlays on Twitter.

According to organizers, it is highly encouraged to make advanced ticket purchases since the discounted ticket offers are limited and some shows will sell out quickly.

Once tickets go on sale all Theatre Week offers and participating shows can be found at
