Chicago Shakespeare’s “Tug of War: Foreign Fire” is Exciting, Addictive and Exhausting

**** Highly Recommended **** “Tug of War: Foreign Fire” is such a huge production it’s hard to know where to start when writing a review.  Watching “Foreign Fire” was like binge watching three or four episodes of a TV drama like “Outlander” or “Game of Thrones”.  It was exciting, addictive, totally exhausting and I loved it!  Brilliantly staged and superbly acted, I give “Foreign Fire” 4 Spotlights.

“Tug of War: Foreign Fire” runs through June 12th in Chicago Shakespeare Theatre’s Courtyard Theatre on Navy Pier, Chicago.  “Tug of War: Civil Strife” will be staged in the fall.  Running time for “Foreign Fire” is 6 hours with 2 15-minute intermissions and a 45-minute meal break.  Performances are Wednesdays and Fridays at 5:00 pm; Saturdays at 4:00 pm; and Sundays at 1:00 pm.  Tickets are discounted 15% when “Foreign Fire” and “Civil Strife” are booked together; full price is $100 for single show.  Parking is available at a 40% discount in the Navy Pier Garages with validation from CST.  FYI (312) 595-5600 or www.chicagoshakes.com.
