The Strawdog Theater Company began life in 1988 using spaces such as the
back room of Cafe Voltaire. An ensemble of 30, now entering their 20th
season, resides in its own permanent space which seats 80 at 3829 N.
Broadway, Strawdog's average ticket is only $20.00 and often offers
student and group discounts. Strawdog also has an adjoining exposed
brick cabaret space with a Liquor license for late night entertainment
ranging from Jazz ensembles, cabaret artists to improv talent. Alum of
Strawdog Theatre include Desperate House Wives star James Denton and TV
and Cabaret Star Alexandra Billings. Mainstage Productions tend to be
darker and edgier than average.
