Chicago's pay-what-you-want storefront theatre company.




Three Crows is a Chicago-based, ensemble, theatre company committed to telling honest, thought-provoking, and entertaining stories. We are a pay-what-you-want storefront theatre company striving to make performances affordable and accessible to all who want to experience the transformative power of theatre. We tell good stories, unapologetically. 


Three Crows is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation. 



Why the name Three Crows? In common folklore, people believe that an appearance by a crow is ominous and foreboding. However, in some cultures, the crow symbolizes wisdom and good luck. The sighting of three crows is considered very lucky, bringing the promise of positive change after a tumultuous period.
