Welcome to Firebrand Theatre.

We are the world's first equity musical theatre company committed to employing and empowering women on and off the stage. Based in the vibrant city of Chicago, Firebrand Theatre's productions will expand the traditional roles of women in musical theatre by reimagining classics, producing unknown gems and commissioning new works.

  • We vow that there will always be as many women on stage as men.
  • We vow to employ women behind the scenes in every aspect of theatre, and particularly in leadership roles.
  • We vow to program shows that showcase and empower women from many different walks of life.
  • We vow to do this in a safe, creative, and collaborative environment.
