Pegasus Players Company is located in the heart of Uptown, one of Chicago's most historical entertainment destinations. The historical, cultural, and commercial center of Uptown is Broadway, with Uptown Square at the center. In 1900 the Northwestern Elevated Railroad constructed its terminal near Montrose and Broadway (now part of the CTA Red Line). This may be where the neighborhood gets its name since it was the terminal of the rail line that led north from the center of the city. The neighborhood's name may also come from its historical roots as a summer resort town for downtown dwellers. For a time, all northbound trains from downtown ended in Uptown. From here Uptown became known as an entertainment destination.
The Aragon Ballroom, Riviera Theater, Uptown Theatre, and Green Mill Jazz Club are all located within a block of Pegasus Players. Uptown is also home to one of Chicago's most celebrated final resting spots, Graceland Cemetery, and is just blocks away from the lake and the beaches adjacent to Margate Park and Montrose Harbor.
