Chicago Shakespeare Theater announces today the cast and creative team for a vibrantly reimagined A Midsummer Night’s Dream, directed by internationally acclaimed director Joe Dowling. Shakespeare’s beloved comedy is infused with raucous humor, a striking visual landscape, and eclectic musical score blending rock, jazz, blues, rock, and ‘50s doo-wop. A multi-talented company of 21 notably features Grey’s Anatomy alum T.R. Knight as Bottom—as well as Alexandra Silber, Edward O’Blenis, Cristina Panfilio, Tyrone Phillips, Melisa Soledad Pereyra, Eric Schabla, and Sam Kebede. In celebration of twenty years of Shakespeare on Navy Pier, Dowling revisits his landmark 1999 production from the Theater’s inaugural season on the Pier, in an all-new production in the Courtyard Theater, December 6, 2018–January 27, 2019.
