The Chicago Theater Accountability Coalition (ChiTAC) seeks to call attention to the acceptance of racism, bigotry, and hate speech in Chicago theater criticism. Comprised of a diverse group of Chicago artists, and necessitated by repeated acts of ignorance and damaging speech on the part of our city’s prominent critics, ChiTAC strives to unite artists and institutions in a clear and public stand against hate. We will stand with Chicago theaters in their work against hatred, and we will hold them publicly accountable to make sure that work is done.
