The Paramount Theatre won five Equity Jeff Awards at the annual Joseph Jefferson Equity Awards ceremony. This was their first year they were eligible to compete. The Equity Jeff Awards, commonly referred to as the "Tonys" of Chicago's theater scene, recognize outstanding productions and performances in the 2014-15 theater season. Paramount received 16 nominations, the most ever for a company in its first year of eligibility in Jeff Awards history.
