As the theater industry examines its role in collaborating with artists both on and offstage to bring diverse and inclusive stories to life, we understand that solidarity from the Jeff Awards is not enough. We recognize that there are limitations to everyone’s understanding of what equity really means. We know our organization has work to do. So we are committed to listen closely and learn how we can be most effective in helping the storytellers in Chicago theater survive and thrive.
