Historical Note

The Northlight Theatre was founded as the Evanston Theatre Company in 1974 by Gregory Kandel. From its earliest days the company has dedicated itself to producing important, thought-provoking plays, while also providing community service programs for Chicago and the northern suburban areas.

The company’s first production (a benefit) was David Mamet’s Duck Variations , which quickly established the Evanston Theatre Company / Northlight as a first-rate, professional theater. In their first three seasons the company presented the Midwest premieres of Steve Tesich’s Nourish the Beast and Tom Stoppard’s Jumpers , as well as revivals of Harold Pinter’s The Birthday Party and George Bernard Shaw’s Candida . Mike Nussbaum, Judith Ivey, Dennis Zacek, Frank Galati, and Maher Ahmad are just a few of the actors, directors and designers who contributed to these early successes. In the Spring of 1978, the Evanston Theatre Company / Northlight instituted a New Plays Festival which featured The Horse Latitudes by Stephen Black. The festival evolved into the Satellite Season which later produced plays by Chicagoans Dean Corrin and Grace McKeaney.

In the Fall of 1978, the Evanston Theatre Company changed its name to North Light Repertory. It changed again in 1984 to the Northlight Theatre Company, which it remains today. In 1981, Canadian-born Eric Steiner replaced Gregory Kandel as Artistic Director. Under his direction Northlight produced two plays by Montreal playwright Michel Tremblay and several specially commissioned world premieres. Steiner left Northlight after two seasons and was replaced by Michael Maggio, a Chicago resident who had directed Northlight’s productions of The Club , Angel Street and Light Up the Sky . Maggio remained at the theater until 1986. During his residence, Northlight produced many of its most popular productions such as Tom Stoppard’s The Real Thing , June Shellene and Richard Fire’s Dealing and City on the Make , adapted by Chicago playwrights and composers Jeffrey Berkson, Denise DeClue and John Karraker from the writings of Nelson Algren. Athol Fugard scholar Russell Vandenbrouke joined Northlight as Artistic Director in April 1987. Of particular interest during the 1988-1989 season was the collaboration of Chicago author Studs Terkel and Paul Sills for Talking to Myself , a production based on Terkel’s writings. The 1990s saw Northlight moving from its original home at 2300 Green Bay Road in Evanston to the vacated Coronet Theatre, where it remained for a number of seasons. In 1996, the company moved to its current home at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Skokie where it continues its commitment to developing news plays, encouraging artistic collaboration and reviving carefully chosen classics.

Scope and Content

The Northlight Theatre Collection contains primarily promotional materials, programs, reviews and clippings, and posters from most of the productions in its 25 year history. The collection also includes copies of prompt scripts for a number of productions from the 1986-1987 and 1987-1988 seasons. The materials are arranged chronologically by season, with posters housed in oversized storage.
