Theater
“Located on Navy Pier, this is our country's most acclaimed Shakespeare theatre. The productions are world class on every level. If you haven't seen a play here, you're missing out on a great evening. It's not the boring Shakespeare you were forced to read in high school. The plays come to life on this main stage. There are major action sequences, lightning and thunder, canons, music, and even singing and dancing. And they feature award winning directors and actors. Tickets are surprisingly affordable...If you're under 35, you can buy two tickets for $20 each. And even regularly priced tickets are not expensive. Parking at Navy Pier is discounted for you as well.”
