The Bailiwick Repertory Theatre is a theater company in Chicago founded in 1982[1] that produces eclectic works.[2] It stages productions at the Bailiwick Arts Center 41°56′23″N 87°39′37″W / 41.9398°N 87.6602°W / 41.9398; -87.6602,[3] its home since 1995.[4]

In 2007, it presented the American premiere of Jerry Springer - The Opera.[5]

Bailiwick Repertory Theater was officially dissolved in the Fall of 2009. At that time, many of the company's former artists got together to create a new company, to continue to Bailiwick's legacy of producing daring and risky musicals and plays.

This new company is called Bailiwick Chicago, launched on November 8, 2009. Bailiwick Chicago is committed to producing quality non-equity musicals and plays, with a special emphasis on cultural, social and sexual diversity. There is no brick & mortar location for the company at this time. Productions are mounted at various locations around Chicago.

The former location of the Bailiwick Arts Center at 1229 W. Belmont Ave is now owned and operated by Theater Wit.
