Profiles Theatre, the long-standing theater on Chicago's North Side, has affiliated itself with the actors' union. The new Equity status coincides with the company's expansion into the former home of the National Pastime Theatre.

According to artistic director Joe Jahraus, Profiles has signed a so-called "Tier N" agreement with Equity, with the intention of slowly adding to its number of Equity contracts over coming seasons. The theater's current production of Neil LaBute's two-character "In a Forest, Dark and Deep" features the Equity actress Natasha Lowe.
