The King's Speech

Until October 20, 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.

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.

As You Like It Poster

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.
