The Agency Theater Collective creates immersive, interactive theatrical experiences, inviting the audience to embrace their collective agency in the process. We hold these principles sacred: revelation, paradox, humor, mischief, and collaboration. The Agency is greater than the sum of its parts. We are The Agency and so are you.

Praise for I Wish to Apologize to the People of Illinois:

I Wish To Apologize“A delightfully wonky, deeply researched new play…an essential tour of Chicago-style politics on a ketamine trip.” — Keith Griffith, the Chicago Reader

3 out of 4 stars — Chicago Tribune

“An intelligent show about a crooked life…a smart and streamlined portrait of what Levine’s world was for years and how quickly it unraveled.” — Kerry Reid, the Chicago Tribune

“This is a play about the soul of a man and the heart of a city.” — Carol Marin, NBC 5.

“Thoughtful and thought-provoking.” — Kelly Kleiman, the Dueling Critics
