Steppenwolf staged Linda Vista back in 2017 from 3/30/17 thru 5/29/17. For some reason I didn't see it, but their website did state at the time (I just googled it) that the production contained nudity.

I would say that the Chicago regional giants are Goodman, Steppenwolf, Chicago Shakespeare, and Victory Gardens. In 30 years of theatergoing, I have not seen nudity in any of their productions. Steppenwolf and Victory Gardens have allowed outside theatre groups like About Face, Pride Arts, and Bailiwick Chicago to stage shows like Take Me Out, Angry Fags, and LaChuisa's The Wild Party in their non-mainstage venues. These shows contained nudity but they weren't Steppenwolf or Victory Gardens productions.

Smaller (usually non-equity) theatre groups in Chicago and Milwaukee have done plays like Killer Joe, The Little Dog Laughed, Some Men, etc. which featured nudity and sexual scenes (simulated or perhaps not). This was somewhat common 5 to 10 years ago, but not so much in recent years. I think the forced shutdown of Profiles Theatre has sent shock waves throughout the Chicago theatre scene (at least that is what I have been told by many sources).
