Historical Note

Bailiwick Repertory’s commitment to presenting the classics began in 1982. Founded by a seven member consortium led by managing directors David Zak and David Pearson, the company’s early goal was to produce classic plays with a fresh, original approach in rotating repertory. Bailiwick’s first season included Joseph Jefferson Award-winning productions of The Country Wife and Holiday .

From 1982 until 1986, when they settled in their first permanent home in the Jane Addams Center at 3212 N. Broadway, Bailiwick productions moved from the Theatre Building on Belmont, to the Beacon Street Theatre, to the space above Cabaret Metro on Clark Street. Through those years, Bailiwick continued its original mission of presenting classics by George Bernard Shaw, Shakespeare and Bertolt Brecht.

By the end of the 1983-1984 Season, David Zak remained as the only member of the original founders still with Bailiwick. He continued to direct plays there, as did Michael Ouellette, Doug Findlayson and Kyle Donnelly.

Over time Bailiwick’s goal shifted from exclusively presenting the classics to a program of productions serving the theater’s diverse audience. Award-winning productions of Emily Mann’s Execution of Justice and Chicago playwright John Logan’s Nebraska are representative of Bailiwick’s commitment to contemporary plays of social consequence or political interest. In addition, a musical adaptation of George Orwell’s Animal Farm , a runaway hit in 1987, added dancing and singing to Bailiwick’s repertoire. In 1989, Bailiwick debuted the “Pride Performance Series” (originally called the “Gay and Lesbian Play Series”), a highly successful summer series geared originally to the large gay community in Bailiwick’s Lake View neighborhood, but which has now become an innovative and vibrant part of the larger theater community in Chicago. Bailiwick’s commitment to supporting Chicago directors also emerged early: a “Dark Night Series,” begun in Bailiwick’s first season, served as a continuing showcase for directors, and an “Encore Series,” providing a forum for short classics and contemporary scripts, soon followed. To give young directors the opportunity to craft their art using the resources of an established theater company, Bailiwick has sponsored a springtime Directors’ Festival since 1989.

In 1992, Bailiwick moved from the Jane Addams Center and returned, this time as a permanent tenant, to the Theater Building where larger stages and a more ample reception area better catered to their growing audience. In 1994, Bailiwick moved next door to 1229 W. Belmont where in addition to presenting their own productions, they leased space for other community arts groups as the Bailiwick Arts Center.

Bailiwick Repertory Theater closed in September 2009, but soon reorganized as Bailiwick Chicago. The mission of the new collective is to “. . . tell stories that stimulate our audience and celebrate our diverse community, enhancing our understanding of ourselves and others.”
