January 28 - March 15, 2020

Breezy, beautiful and uncommonly interested in love-loves (or lack thereof) of others, Emma Woodhouse might be Jane Austen's most imperfect heroine, but that doesn't make her tale any less delightful to watch. Now presented by the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre in an adaptation by Tony-nominated Paul Gordon, find new wit and warmth in Austen's work as set to lush melodies and imbued with new lyrical flourishes.

April 15 - May 2, 2020

It's the age-old battle of the sexes but not as we know it! The RSC brings this bold new revamp of The Bard's audacious tale of gender, societal roles and disguise to North American shores this year, giving stateside audiences the chance to enjoy this reimagined version, where the roles between men and women are reversed, placing nearly 70 percent of the lines originally written for men in the hands of an ensemble cast of fierce female performers.

April 30 - June 21, 2020

Director Daryl Cloran presents a fresh new retelling of Shakespeare's As You Like It. Presented at Chicago's Shakespeare Theater, the comedy originally written in 1599 is re-told and this time is set in the swinging '60s. The play takes place when free-spirited love is the theme of the time and is set to The Beatles' timeless hits, creating a joyous and music-filled love story.
