Chicago Hosts Yearlong International Shakespeare Festival

We’re proud to be a part of Shakespeare 400 Chicago – a yearlong international arts festival in 2016 celebrating the playwright’s vibrancy, relevance and reach. This amazing set of over 800 programs with Chicago’s leading cultural institutions unites our city’s cultural, creative, and educational institutions, and welcomes leading artists from around the globe to make Chicago their stage.
