Come to Navy Pier’s Chicago Shakespeare Theater “by the pricking of your thumbs” to see William Shakespeare’s “Macbeth,” April 25-June 4, and stay at the nearby and affordable Chicago Lake Shore Hotel in historic Hyde Pak!
“Macbeth” is murder most foul, with witches (“something wicked this way comes”), corrupt leaders and some of the greatest quotes of all time. This production is co-directed by Aaron Posner and—are you ready for this—Penn, of Penn and Teller! Expect magic on a scale Shakespeare could only imagine! Oh! Want to hear Teller talk? Go to YouTube and hear him talk about this very special play production!
Magic, witches, dark moors, and stunning sights will delight and deceive in an electrifying tale of ambition and madness. Dark deeds are afoot in The Yard at Chicago Shakespeare, as Macbeth and his Lady risk all for the ultimate prize. But once they have it, how long can they hold on to the throne? Shakespeare’s haunting drama of political intrigue and personal frailty is brought to light in an immersive visual world where “nothing is but what is not.” Chicago’s newest performance space, The Yard, hailed as “the greatest new theater in the world,” by Chicago Tribune, is home to this supernatural tale, starring Helen Hayes award-winner Ian Merrill Peakes and Chicago leading lady Chaon Cross as Lord and Lady Macbeth.
The Chicago Shakespeare Theater is located at Navy Pier, 600 East Grand Avenue in Chicago. For tickets, go online to https://www.chicagoshakes.com/plays_and_events/macbeth and follow the prompts.
