Must be 21+ to attend.
Check your theatre etiquette at the door and join us for the world premiere of “Choose Thine Own Adventure,” opening October 23 at Chicago’s Underground Lounge, right in the heart of Wrigleyville. We’re bringing Will Shakespeare back to his rowdy Elizabethan roots. Lively, garrulous, with beer and dice in hand, Shakespeare’s Groundlings were a far-cry from the reserved theatre patrons of today. Reawaken your Groundling spirit with the only Shakespeare play that lets the audience decide the action. To be or not to be? You decide!
Marco Minichiello, Ped Naseri, Omen Sade*, and Mary Spearen*
