SoloChicago is proud to be the city’s only Equity company committed to the development and production of world-class one-person plays and musicals that explore unheard voices, and give our audiences an unusually intimate human interaction at the theater.
Our current touring offerings star the original critically-acclaimed performers, and allow audiences across the country to enjoy “one on one” experiences with notable figures from both ends of the social spectrum: renowned statesman Sir Winston Churchill in CHURCHILL, and infamous Jack The Ripper victim Mary Jane Kelly in THE UNFORTUNATES.
Whether staged in repertory or booked separately – or for long, limited run, or one-night appearances – SoloChicago’s 2017/18 touring productions give you the opportunity to present your audiences with unique, impressive, and unforgettable programming.
Starring Gail Rastorfer (Cold War, The Chicago Code, Boss, Crisis, Chicago Fire), in her Jeff-Award nominated performance as Mary Jane Kelly, THE UNFORTUNATES invites the audience to spend an evening with one of Victorian London’s most engaging “unfortunates,” infamous as the final victim of Jack The Ripper.
Immersive, entertaining, funny, and frightening, THE UNFORTUNATES offers a rare glimpse into a time and place that continues to haunt our imaginations, and into the soul of a woman whose grit, humor, and heart still resonates.
SOLOCHICAGO HAS ANOTHER HIT TO ITS CREDIT.
GAIL RASTORFER IS MAGNIFICENT

Coming to you from a sold out Off-Broadway run, CHURCHILL stars Ron Keaton in his critically acclaimed and Jeff-Award winning performance as the “British Bulldog” who captured the hearts of millions and led his country to victory in WW2.
An original script by Keaton, CHURCHILL finds the former Prime Minister in a reflective, intimate mood, allowing the audience to see not only the fierce statesman but also to experience his gentle side – making the great man relatable without diminishing him, and allowing his humor and humanity to shine through.
RIVETING… A TRIUMPH!
