We've received word that Larry Penn has passed away. He performed many times at the Two Way Street. Songwriter, poet, storyteller, wit, mentor, friend. Larry was all of these, and so much more. Our condolences to his family, friends and fans. He lives on in all our hearts. Thanks for the memories, Larry!

Come see the new
Two Way Street Coffee House!
We hope you're enjoying our restored and remodeled coffee house!
The floodwaters which ravaged Chicagoland last year did not spare the Two Way Street Coffee House. But with the hard work of our volunteers, plus lots of help from our host church, insurance company and contractors, we have a refreshed Two Way Street! New walls, floor, stage, kitchen, heating system, stage lighting, and more! And soon, remodeled bathrooms and improvements to our performer dressing room!
We are immensely grateful to all of our community, including our performers and audiences, for the confidence and support they have shown. We didn't need to cancel a single one of our 35+ monthly shows and events!
A footnote: although most of the flood damage was insured, the related improvements we've been making have a substantial cost. If you would like to help us defray some of these costs, financial contributions would be greatly appreciated! We are a charitable not-for-profit organization, and gifts are tax deductible. Gifts, payable to Two Way Street, can be mailed to us at 1047 Curtiss Street, Downers Grove, IL 60515. If you would like, please contact us at 630-968-5526 so we can best recognize your generosity.
