Alejandro Cordoba returns to Chicago Shakespeare Theater, where he appeared in Edward II and Othello. Other Chicago credits include: When She Danced (TimeLine Theatre Company); The Master and Margarita (Strawdog Theatre Company); and Living Newspaper Festival (Jackalope Theater). He performed in the touring company of Peter Pan (360 Entertainments). Alejandro received his BFA in acting from Roosevelt University. He was first introduced to Shakespeare as a high school senior reading Hamlet. “My English teacher, Mr. Holmes, assigned roles to different students and had us read it aloud. I remember wondering what Shakespeare’s environment must have been like, then realizing that I could use my imagination to travel in time and find out.”
