MCL Chicago T-Shirts!

Closing cost money, and you can get an MCL t-shirt! There are lots of different closing costs that we are faced with as we shut down MCL: February rent, breaking down and removing everything from the space, accounting fees, etc., etc. With limited production revenue in January we're cutting it close. Also, we've never been able to afford purchasing MCL t-shirts to sell so with the help of the good people at Good Ink we can do both!

From 2014 - 2018 we have strived to bring the art of music improv and music comedy to the forefront of Chicago's iconic comedy scene. Throughout our four years we have provided a performance space for 100+ shows, 1,000+ performers, and countless audience members. We have always made it a priority to value the time, talent, and energy of all the performers working on MCL productions and compensating them what we could. Unfortunately the lease on our current space keeps increasing and we simply can't maintain pace. Our greatest accomplishment, and our true pride, is that the shows that debuted at MCL are living on at different theaters around Chicago. Thank you to everyone who ever stepped foot in MCL Chicago. You made this place that we called home for the past four years possible.

I witnessed magic at MCL — smart, talented, funny people improvising brilliant sketches AND songs ON THE SPOT. I saw spontaneous genius here over and over again. One of those clever contributors was my daughter, who found a home and family at MCL. I'll always be grateful for that. Long live Musical Comedy Live!

MCL created a place for me to initially try and develop my Music Improv skills. Along the way, I met so many amazing people who have become a major part of my community in Chicago. I will always be thankful!

Few places leave such an impact of positivity and inspiration in their wake as they move on. MCL made the world better. I will always cherish and remember all the love and experiences I had there. Shine on you crazy diamonds!

Even though the building is no longer there, MCL lives on in the spirit of its performers, and I am very glad to have been associated with this house.
