“Navy Pier got it ALL”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

Navy pier is a definite must see!! Got a nice ferris wheel so you can see all along lakeshore dirve, Bubba Gump shrimp, lots of good places to eat outside, Take a stroll along the pier, go for a cruise along lake michigan and see Bears Stadium, Wills Tower, Hancock Building and downtown Chicago..Check out the old architecture, while cruising meet people from all over the world and sit back and relax..You can theatre, stain class, art while walking through navy piers building just so much to see and easy to get to. Catch a taxi and hand there for awhile...

“A shrewd production.”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

We saw an excellent production of Taming of the Shrew. Punchy and fast moving but true to the play. Created with the younger audience in mind the production was entertaining for all ages and the transparency of the acting made the story easily understood and the Shakesperian writing sing.

Would recommend it to anyone.

“Enjoyed Taming of the Shrew!”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

We totally enjoyed this performance on a Saturday morning at Navy Pier. The actors were wonderful and they managed to tell the story in such an entertaining fashion for such a short show. It was a chilly morning there, so a great way to spend some time inside!

“Have been here many times.”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

The plays are always very well done. We usually try to see any production directed by Barbara Gaines, the Artistic Director, because our experience is that there is always something unusually imaginative, as well as appropriate to the play
