Tim Gittings (Peter/Friar John) returns to Chicago Shakespeare Theater, where he appeared in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Taming of the Shrew and Short Shakespeare! The Taming of the Shrew. Other Chicago credits include: Awake and Sing! (Northlight Theatre); A Christmas Carol (Goodman Theatre); As You Like It, Heartbreak Hotel (Writers’ Theatre); When You Comin’ Back, Red Ryder (Circle Theatre); and Mrs. Mackenzie’s Beginner’s Guide to the Blues (Stage Left Theatre). Regional credits include: three seasons at American Players Theatre, two seasons at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival and seven seasons with Door Shakespeare. The first Shakespeare I ever studied was actually being in two shows in eighth grade, Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night's Dream. I thought the language was tricky but some of it was really beautiful (once I understood what people were saying). Plus, I liked getting to sword-fight and kiss pretty girls.
