The 1-hour-and-15-minute abridged production at 9625 S. Longwood Drive is part of the annual Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks program, which brings the performance to 18 parks throughout the city.
The show adapted and directed by Marti Lyons is sponsored by the city along with the Chicago Park District, BMO Harris and Boeing. The Chicago Shakespeare Theater's show will be performed 25 times as part of the summer program.
“Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks has been instrumental in connecting Chicago’s communities with world-class theater and shining a spotlight on our local performers,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel said in a written release.
The citywide tour runs through Aug. 27 and shows are performed rain or shine. Since its inception six years ago, more than 100,000 people have attended a Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks show, officials said.
