Port of Entry invites you to step inside the stories of immigrants from all parts of the world as they forge new lives within the walls of a single apartment building in one of the country’s most diverse immigrant communities: Chicago’s Albany Park. You won’t find this immersive performance on a stage; instead, Port of Entry unfolds across the three floors of a re-created apartment building in Chicago’s Albany Park neighborhood. Co-created by Albany Park Theater Project and Third Rail Projects and performed by APTP’s youth ensemble, Port of Entry will take you on a journey through time and across cultures, welcoming you into the lives of people who have made this place their home over the span of a century.

Currently in development for a 2023 premiere, Port of Entry is the newest collaboration between Albany Park Theater Project and Third Rail Projects, the co-creators of 2016’s Learning Curve.
