Address and Physical Location

THE ENTRANCE TO THE BUILDING STAGE is located off of the parking lot at 412 N. Carpenter Street in Chicago's West Loop. We are one block south of Grand Avenue (500 N) and a few blocks west of Halsted Street (800 W).

There is free parking in our lot as well as ample street parking in the evenings. The theater is also an easy walk from public transportation. If you are lost, look for the big sign for Sherwin-Williams Paints located at the edge of our parking lot.

Guide to public transportation

Your best option, in our opinion, is to take the Blue Line train and exit at the Grand stop which is at the corner of Grand, Halsted, and Milwaukee. You can also take either the #8 Halsted bus or the #56 Milwaukee bus here as well.

From this intersection, walk west on Grand toward Carpenter. Turn south on Carpenter (the only direction you can go) and travel a block and a half. You pass under a railroad embankment. The parking lot immediately on your right, currently marked most clearly by a big sign for Sherwin-Williams Paints, is what you are looking for. On the south side of the lot is the entrance to our theater.

There is a bus that runs on Grand Ave which theoretically gets you closest to the theater, about a block away, but the service isn't great and the hours limited.
