The Chicago Red Line


The Chicago Red Line is Chicago’s premiere contemporary cabaret ensemble. This group of professional singers, actors and dancers are dedicated to bringing a variety of musical genres to our diverse audiences.

Founded in 2008 and led by our executive board, the “LOOP”, this unique group has performed at a variety of venues throughout the Chicago-land area. There are no regularly scheduled auditions, so if you are interested in joining this exclusive group of performers, e-mail Adam Gilbert. Please join our email list to receive information about upcoming shows. Also, we would love the opportunity to perform at your function or event.




Summer 2017

The Chicago Red Line brought the best of its past shows, delivering a mix of adult comedy to soft ballads and summer singles. Oh… and our first bottomless mimosa brunch theatre show! One for the books!

Spring 2017

After an enchantress has put a curse upon the handsome prince, the castle and all within it live under the terror of the “Beech.” Only true love will be able to break the spell, and set all of the castle’s inhabitants free.

Fall 2016

An adult comedy take on the story of “the Boy Who Lived” and his fight against “He Who Must Not Be Named.” Only through pop songs and musical theatre numbers will Harry and his gang be able to defeat the infamous Lord Malort.

Spring 2016

Willy’s Wonkabar’s doors had been shuttered for 30 years. But  Boystown’s hottest club has been opened to five(ish) winners of the golden dildos. Fun, drinking, and dancing ensued in this delicious adventure!

Fall 2015

Princess Lay’yah’s ship has been attacked by Darth Sphincter. With Homo One as her only hope, the hair-bun armed heroin must fight with Luke Guystalker, Hand Solo, and Pubebacca for the security of Chicago.

Summer 2015 and Prior!

Celebrating over twenty full productions (not even our Best Ofs!), the Chicago Red Line has been delighting audiences across the city of Chicago for over ten years. Make sure to join in the fun and come see our next show!
