Set in New York City, Ordinary Days explores the day-to-day lives of four characters—two men and two women—to uncover the fascinating ways they intersect. Their personal stories of pursuing ambitious goals in work and education, along with forging meaningful friendships, are revealed in the show’s 21 relevant, witty songs.


Standard ticket price for this event is $15 ($5 for students). If you can, show your love for the arts by purchasing a $40 “Advocate” ticket; the additional ticket cost directly benefits Lyric Theatre @ Illinois.


This in-person event will be staged in the Krannert Center Amphitheatre with the audience seated in chairs on the flat terrace to the west of the stage. Seating is general admission and opens at 3:30pm. Because of limited capacity, up to two tickets may be purchased per transaction. No physical tickets will be delivered; audience members will check in on a will call list with a staff member at the seating area. The performance will take place unless weather causes a safety concern. Any weather-related announcements will be posted here at 2pm each performance day. If you have accessibility needs, please contact us at patronservices@krannertcenter.illinois.edu or 217.333.9716; we will be happy to assist you.
