***** Highly Recommended ***** Chicago Shakespeare Theater hosted their official opening for the delightful comedy “Shakespeare in Love” on Shakespeare’s actual birthday, April 23rd. Lee Hall’s stage adaptation of the screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard is romantic, funny and thoroughly enjoyable. It’s hard not to love this incredible cast as they bring Will and his compatriots to life – acting, dancing, dueling, fighting, and falling in love! 4 Spotlights
