The idiosyncrasies of this theatre make for a unique theatrical experience.
The magic of Shakespeare
Chicago never lacks for entertainment and we invite you to enjoy it. Don’t expect to find traditional plays in this theatre, what you will find is extraordinary, contemporary productions of plays by the acclaimed William Shakespeare, productions which allow the public to feel that his wonderful stories speak directly to them. Since 1986, in this corner of the historic Navy Pier, new life has been breathed into the timeless stories including creative musical productions as well as more traditional productions. With a programme that varies according to the season, in its two intimate theatres you can see a marvellous production inspired, as always, by Shakespeare’s timeless ideas on the human condition. The theatre has won several theatrical awards, amongst which is the Regional Theatre Tony Award. A great theatrical experience which is not to be missed. (www.chicagoshakes.com)
