Support our Work

Something Marvelous celebrates imagination through the genre of magical realism. Because of donors like you, we’ve been able to present 3 world premiere productions, 1 Chicago premiere, and over 50 new works of magical realism to Chicago audiences in just 7 years. And we’re just getting started!

2018 was the year of reflections. The Chicago premiere of Firefly Love by Alejandro Ricaño with translation by Héctor Garza, saw a young woman’s life changed because of a cursed typewriter and a doppelganger. The staff of Something Marvelous has done a lot of reflecting, too, and we have made great strides in growing our company. We added two new staff members, a new board member, and received our largest grant to date from the Illinois Arts Council.

The vast majority of our funding and support comes from individual donors like you. Thank you for your support; every gift makes a huge difference!
