ShakesFest: A Chicago Shakespeare Community Cabaret

Updated: Jun 28, 2022

I've done the green show for Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks three times; now, I'm glad to say that I'll finally be a part of the main Summer show! There will be singing and dancing and joy, which is what we NEED. I hope you all enjoy this. We only have six performances and they're all over Chicago!

As described on the CST website: "Performers, musicians, and dancers take center stage in this exuberant musical revue of songs riffing on familiar (and not-so-familiar) lines from Shakespeare! From pop to musicals, hip hop, and the blues, Shakespeare’s words find joyful new life in unexpected ways.

This FREE, fun-for-all-ages event celebrates community-building, connection, and the magic of experiencing live performance together with family, friends, and neighbors.

Featured arts partners include: Jose “iasEL” Gonzalez, DJ Jeremy Heights, James Heitz, Emma Lyons, Noelle Klyce, Move Me Soul, Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center, and Yin He Dance."
