Free Theater! Lots of it!

There are lots of cheap ways to see theater in Chicago, but free tickets are normally reserved for friends, family and press. Lucky for you, Theatre Communications Group (TCG) thinks you should see shows for free too - at least for this month.

Free Night of Theater 2009 is scheduled to kick-off on October 15 and continue throughout the month. You can find a show here - and before you jump down our throats about how many are sold-out, take note that new blocks of tickets are released every Tuesday. The variety of theaters that are participating is pretty awesome - there are offerings from storefronts, not-quite-storefronts, and big-name companies - so be sure to take advantage.

So look through their listings and check out a free show!
