Black Ensemble Theater

The site, midway between the popular Chicago neighborhoods of Wrigleyville and Andersonville, is two blocks from BET's previous location. The new facility contains a 300-seat thrust theater that duplicates the Company's preferred specifications on a larger scale. There is a second, flexible theater that enables the Company to expand their production schedule. Backstage areas support both theaters and include dressing rooms, scene shop, pop shop, costume shop, rehearsal room, and wardrobe room.
