Midsummer Night’s Dream: Shakespeare in the Park
Woot! Chicago has another year of Shakespeare in the Park!
The Chicago Shakespeare Theater is hosting Shakespeare in the Park. This year, they will perform A Midsummer Night’s Dream. One of my favorites, so I really want to see this one.
If you are unfamiliar with Shakespeare in the Park, the theater will perform this play in parks throughout the city. If it is like previous performances, the theater will perform on a small stage and tell a great story– all with limited props. I went to Taming of the Shrew a few years back and brought a lawn chair and a bottle of wine–as did the other crowd of theater lovers. This is one of my favorite events, and I hope everyone tries to attend one.
For 2014, performances will be from July 18-August 18 and will be performed at eighteendifferent parks throughout the city. Find the park closest to you and grab a picnic blanket!
