The Magical Exploding Circus and the Invisible Circus Takes Part in Chicago Theatre Week

CHICAGO, IL - The Actors Gymnasium joins 100 of Chicago's finest theatres, taking part in the 2nd annual Chicago Theatre Week. Chicago Theatre Week is presented by The League of Chicago Theatres and Choose Chicago whose past projects include the hugely successful Restaurant Week. 


As part of the celebration of Chicago's theatre scene, The Actors Gymnasium will offer discounted tickets to the opening weekend of The Magical Exploding Boy and the Invisible Circus, the latest production in its winter circus series.

This Actors Gymnasium mainstage circus event features original live music, aerial acrobatics, and the birth of a clown. The Magical Exploding Boy and the Invisible Circus also features Will Howard, Simone Lazar, Javen Ulambayar, and Lindsey Noel Whiting.
