Hamlet

Until June 9, 2019

Maurice Jones takes on the role of a lifetime in this new production of Hamlet, following in the footsteps of Olivier, Burton, and Cumberbatch. Arguably Shakespeare's greatest work, Hamlet is thick with political intrigue and existential dilemmas, and of course, the most famous soliloquy in history. This Chicago Shakespeare Company production is helmed by Artistic Director Barbara Gaines, known for her accessible stagings of The Bard's work.

Six

Until June 30, 2019

Henry VIII's six wives are stepping out from the big man's shadow to take their turn in the spotlight. Created by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, this musical celebration of 16th Century girl power debuted on the West End in 2018 to fantastic reviews.

The King's Speech Poster

The King's Speech

September 12 - October 17, 2019

With his country on the brink of another unfathomable war with Germany, King George VI (affectionately known as Bertie) is wracked with nerves as he steps up to address his subjects. Suffering all his life from a debilitating stammer, the public speaking expected of a monarch in the growing age of radio has Bertie on the back foot. Coupled with a responsibility he never expected, the King must find his voice. Enter charismatic speech therapist Lionel Logue, an Australian with dramatic flair - and the man who's going to teach his King to overcome his problem, however unorthodox the treatment.

Romeo and Juliet

November 1 - December 22, 2019

The Chicago Shakespeare Theater enshrines the poetry of their namesake in a thrilling new adaptation of the Bard's most recognisable tragedy - Romeo and Juliet. The tale of two opposing houses and two determined young lovers is directed by the world renowned company's founder and Artistic Director resident Barbara Gaines, the woman behind the CST's 25 Joseph Jefferson Awards, three Olivier Awards and a highly coveted Regional Theater Tony Award.

Emma Poster

Emma

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.
