Chicago Shakespeare in collaboration with the Park District are bringing a performance of The Taming of the Shrew to Humboldt Park tonight (Friday 8/3) and tomorrow (Saturday 8/4) at the Humboldt Park Boathouse. The show tonight starts at 6:30 p.m. and tomorrow's show is at 4:00 p.m., both are free.
The performances feature professional actors, elaborate costumes and a rock n' roll soundtrack, and they're written to appeal to a wide age range, making this a very family friendly event. The actors will perform on a portable stage that's delivered by truck and has speakers and lighting like a theater. You can watch a video of it being set up here.
We're happy to see another unique cultural event coming to the park this summer. Pack a picnic dinner and come enjoy some free entertainment with your family and friends.
