CST Insider - August 2013

Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks Featured on WBEZ’s Afternoon Shift

Chicago Shakespeare Theater's Executive Director Criss Henderson, the Chicago Park District’s Director of Cultural and Natural Resources Adam Schwerner and actor Tiffany Yvonne Cox joined WBEZ’s Niala Boodhoo to discuss the citywide impact of Chicago’s new cultural tradition: Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks. Now in its second year, this bold initiative tours a professional CST production to parks across the city—FREE FOR ALL—inviting Chicago families to spend a summer evening with Shakespeare.
