Shakespeare a cappella

Winter 2016

The words of William Shakespeare are illuminated through innovative and artful a cappella music as we commemorate the 400-year legacy of the Bard in 2016. Jeff Award-winning actors Barbara Robertson and Greg Vinkler from Chicago Shakespeare Theater join us on stage to enhance the drama, as sonnets and soliloquies are set to music by brilliant composers from around the world. Principal Music Director John William Trotter prepares this exciting musical celebration, with a script and stage direction by Jeff Award-winning writer/director/actor Tom Mula.
