On Saturdays, the DuSable Museum will welcome DuComedy. Since Chicago has a reputation for being a true comedy city, this entertainment event will showcase local and national talents who’ll be tested on one of the most discerning stages in the country.
“DuSummer” will take place five (5) days per week, Wednesday through Sunday, on the Plaza of the DuSable Museum Roundhouse. Nightly themes for the series are DuJazz, DuRhythm, DuHouse, DuComedy, DuSteppin’ Day Party.
The DuSable Museum of African American History is excited to present the 2021 entertainment season, building on the success of its previous outdoor experiences. Our “Sounds of History” and “Cabin Fever” performances became destination events attended by visitors from throughout the city and suburbs. Now, by partnering with JMC Events, the DuSable Museum will expand its footprint to encompass every musical style born of the Black diaspora.
