Programming at Stage 773


Stage 773’s SMUSH! showcases Chicago’s funniest up and coming comedians in a unique interactive open mic. For the first 30 seconds, each comic performs uninterrupted. For the remaining 3 ½ minutes of their act, the audience is encouraged to offer opinions, commentary, or ideas for the piece. Expect the unexpected as the audience and comedians SMUSH! together in this one-of-a-kind open mic–“Come to laugh, come to perform, either way the drinks are cheap.”

Performances are every week on Mondays.

Sign-ups begin at 7:30 PM at the bar. The show begins at 8:00 PM.

What we do

We spend our days running an amazing four-theater complex in the fabulous Lakeview area. But when nights and weekends arrive, we really have some fun.

Stage 773 produces a number of shows that we are truly proud of. Our generous donors don’t only help us through reduced rent for our tenants, they also allows us to create some amazing programs as well. From new works to musicals to festivals, Stage 773 offers artists venues to hone and perfect their craft.

Come play with us.
