We at Promethean Theatre Ensemble believe that to be silent is to be complicit. We raise our voices in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. To the people of color we work with, work for, and love – and to those we may never even meet – we express our heartfelt support. #BlackLivesMatter
Thanks, thanks, and ever thanks
As our world has turned upside down, we would like to thank the artists, patrons, and organizations who have so generously supported Promethean. While we wait and make plans for when we can safely be together at the theatre once again, we are forever grateful to those who have kept the ghostlight on until that day arrives.

Promethean is graciously funded by the Arts Work Fund – Arts for Illinois Emergency Relief Fund housed at The Chicago Community Trust.
Are you able to donate to help PTE offset the financial burden placed on us by the sudden closing of our hit show, Mrs. Warren’s Profession, and the uncertain conclusion of Season 14? We’d love it if you would. Any amount, no matter how small, will be deeply appreciated.
Until we can join together again for some entertaining theatre that fuses simplicity of design with intelligent, passionate storytelling, keep your imagination burning bright.
Five Jeff nominations!
Promethean Theatre Ensemble extends our deepest gratitude to all the artists, ticket holders, and well-wishers who helped make our Season 14 a success. Congratulations to the entire Chicago theatre community for their work and passion. We’re honored to be a part of such a warm and talented group. Stay strong, stay safe.
