Chicago Shakespeare Theater serves as the cultural anchor of historic Navy Pier on downtown Chicago’s lakefront. Sir Peter Hall, Founder of Great Britain’s Royal Shakespeare Company, calls it “one of the best, if not the best, Shakespeare spaces in the world.” The Yard at Chicago Shakespeare introduces a new trend in theater architecture to the city, with audience capacities ranging from 150 to 850. The dynamic design features nine mobile audience “towers” that can be arranged in a wide variety of ways. With each visit, you will come to “expect the unexpected” as the relationship between audience and actor is redefined by the vision of each production’s creative team.
