After agreement on a long-term, strategic partnership between Broadway in Chicago and The PrivateBank, the venue formerly known as the Bank of America Theatre has been renamed The PrivateBank Theatre, where Broadway's biggest hit, Hamilton, will make its home in September 2016. The first production under the new marquee will be the award-winning CABARET, beginning on February 9. "The PrivateBank and Broadway In Chicago share a belief that a strong arts and culture community is one of the things that makes Chicago such a great city," said Larry D. Richman, president and chief executive officer of The PrivateBank. "We are proud to put our name on this beautiful and treasured venue. At the same time, we plan to partner with Broadway In Chicago to make the theater experience accessible to youth throughout the city."
