The Original London Production of The Woman in Black in Chicago

Dazzling! Fantastic! Spine-tingling! Over eight million people have lived to tell the tale of one of the most successful – and thrilling – theatre events ever staged, and it’s now shocking audiences in Chicago. Given 3 ½ stars by The Chicago Tribune’s Chris Jones, The Woman in Black – London’s long-running West End play – is now open at Chicago’s Royal George Theatre through February 17, 2019 with all the stage thrills that have led audiences in London to return time after time for 30 years. Susan Hill’s Gothic ghost story, adapted for the stage by Stephen Mallatratt, is set in an isolated windswept mansion with tragic secrets hidden behind its shuttered windows. There, a young lawyer encounters spooky visions in the house set amidst the eerie marshes and howling winds of England’s forbidding Northeast Coast. With just two actors, The Woman in Black offers audiences an evening of sheer theatricality as they are transported into a chilling and ghostly world. The Chicago Tribune calls it “a toe-curling shocker,” and other reviews rave: “Superb!” - Newcity “Chilling!” – Chicago Theater Beat “Spooky!” – Broadway World “Epic!” – Picture this Post “Excellent!” – Third Coast Review “Mesmerizing!” – Splash Magazine “Brilliant!” – Chicago Theater Reviews The Chicago Sun-Times says, “It’s rare to see a show that so effectively controls the audience’s point of focus, employing shadow and light like a master stage magician. Whether it’s jump scares or slowly building dread, ‘The Woman In Black’ delivers.” Performances of THE WOMAN IN BLACK are as follows: Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30pm; Saturdays and Sundays at 2:30pm. Tickets are $49 to $69. To purchase tickets, please visit or the Box Office at 312.988.9000. For more information, visit
