The Book of Joseph

The Book of Joseph

January 29 – March 5
By Karen Hartman
Based on the life of Joseph A. Hollander and his family
Directed by Barbara Gaines

Read More

Every family has its secrets. Richard Hollander’s remained in an unopened suitcase for fifteen years after the death of his parents. Inside, he found a collection of Swastika-stamped letters written during World War II by a family he never knew—his late father Joseph’s mother, three sisters, their husbands and children. Unable to convince the family to leave Poland, Joseph escaped to the United States where he fought to save his family from annihilation at the hands of the Nazis, and to avoid deportation and death himself. Richard collected his family’s letters in his book, Every Day Lasts A Year, the inspiration for this frequently chilling, often humorous, and always deeply moving drama, staged by Artistic Director Barbara Gaines.

Love’s Labor’s Lost

Love’s Labor’s Lost

February 7 – March 26
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Marti Maraden

Read More

King Ferdinand of Navarre’s “no fun” edict includes scholarly endeavors, quiet contemplation and complete commitment to chastity for three entire years. His closest courtiers reluctantly sign on. But this is a comedy and it doesn’t take long for everyone to figure out that the whole thing is a bad idea and rules are meant to be broken—especially when the French Princess and her beautiful entourage arrive on the scene. The young men’s studies soon give way to secret letters and amorous vows as the women set out to teach the men a thing or two about love.

Short Shakespeare! Romeo and Juliet

Short Shakespeare! Romeo and Juliet

February 25 – March 25
By William Shakespeare
Adapted and directed by Marti Lyons

Read More

Verona burns under summer’s heat—and the hatred of two families. The Prince decrees: if Montague or Capulet again disrupts the peace, lives will answer to the law. Violence stains Verona’s streets. Against this horror, Shakespeare sets Romeo and Juliet, a tale of true love found—and tragically lost—within an endless cycle of hate. This 75-minute adaptation, told in Shakespeare’s own words, speaks to today’s youth about their own lives. After the performance, audiences are welcome to join the cast for a post-show discussion.

Chicago Flower & Garden Show

Chicago Flower & Garden Show

March 18-26, 2017
Join us in 2017 for “Chicago’s Blooming!”

Read More

The Second City. The Windy City. The City of Big Shoulders. Whatever the name or title, Chicago is much more than a headline or destination. It’s the melting pot of the Midwest and where the Ferris wheel took its first spin. A place where skyscrapers make the view, improv shows rein and hot dogs are served ketchup-less. If you haven’t caught our drift, we’re saying that Chicago is unlike any other.

With all this Chicago spirit and love, you have to be asking, “What does this have to do with the show?” Well, in honor of this city in a garden, the 2017 show theme will be applauding all that is wonderful about Chicago’s neighborhoods, cultural institutions and green scene. (Which happens to be a lot!) From urban design innovations to cutting-edge food fusions to leaner and greener living, Chicago is where ideas are born and built.

And that is a reason to celebrate!

The nine-day event will feature 20+ life-sized gardens that you can walk through, daily seminars, DIY workshops and a bustling marketplace. Perfect for families, gardening veterans and newbies, the 2017 Chicago Flower & Garden Show will be an event filled with hands-on experiences and non-stop fun. So join us this March as we inspire, motivate and educate visitors of all ages with “Chicago’s Blooming.”

Directed by Rachel Rockwell

The Oscar-winning romantic comedy about Shakespeare and his Chamberlain’s Men returns to its rightful home—the stage. Imagine a young playwright on the make struggling to write his new tragic love story, “Romeo and Ethel, The Pirate’s Daughter.” The title just doesn’t have the right ring—and young Will Shakespeare knows it. He’s got writer’s block and must do something quickly. Will needs a muse, and he finds one in Viola, a vivacious beauty who will do anything—even disguise herself as a man—to audition for the stage where no women are permitted to perform.
