Can I just say AWESOME performance and much expected when I first got wind of this exciting performance. If you are local this may have been advertised often but up in the suburbs I came across the advertising in a suspicious kind of way. It took a little searching the net to see what the talk was in Chicago for the month.

The location was very easy to find, whether you were local, near, or tourist. Every cab driver, bus, train schedule, or whatever you decide can get you there to navy pier. The Theater is located right there, just a little walking from the front of navy pier but worth the 5 minute walk. If you drive there is parking and 40% off since you are purchasing a ticket for the Shakespeare. You most certainly have to receive the voucher from the staff when you arrive in theater.

The taming of the Shrew was the short story that I went to see and very well put together. Shakespeare is not one to feel intimidated, whether you understand or not, you will find yourself relating rather quickly no matter the person. The seating from any angle will still be great, since it was so well designed.

Pricing was $20 for adults, $16 for youth and senior citizen you will have to call and ask. Military was not honored. Saturday performances are the best. After the short story of approximately 75 minutes, the actors & actresses come out in the lobby and sign autographs, conversation for questions and answers. They also took photos for all that requested as well. Tickets were available online and at the box office there too. This I recommend to any age and especially the up and coming students studying Shakespeare or theater. If you looking to experience Shakespeare live and great acting come see for yourselves.
