  • Please give my love to Barbara Gaines, Marilyn Halperin and everyone at the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre. Being within reach of that company was one of the best things about living in Chicago (and given the music and the architecture and the people that Chicago has going for it, that is saying a lot). I miss it terribly.

  • I had the pleasure of acting here in 2001-2003, and it was one of the highlights of my acting career. Working with Gary Griffin on both Shakespeare and Sondheim was inspiring and a little terrifying. I remember always trying to live up to the excellence happening all around me. And a pub that stays open after the show? Come on! Great theatre. I know you’ll enjoy your visit.
