History/Achievements: According to Metromix.com Chicago : “Wicker Park's beautiful white terra-cotta Chopin Theatre was built in 1918, and served as an anchor of Chicago's Polish community for years. Now owned by Zygmunt Dyrkacz, the off-Loop venue hosts a whopping 500 presentations per year on the main stage (seats up to 226) and the more intimate black-box studio (with room for 175). You'll find European theater and literary events, annual festivals and a roster of guest artists”.
Centerstage.net –“With this kind of schedule, one might feel the inkling to compare Chopin to the conventional downtown theater. A word to the wise: Don't compare. Chopin prides itself on producing non-traditional, non-commercial plays purely for the sake of art”.
