Happy 445th Birthday, Shakespeare!

Happy biiIIiiirirrthhdaaaay, dear Willl-iammmmm,
Happy biirrrrrrthdaaaay, tooooooo youuuuuuu!

In honor of this, Chicago's mayor declared part of last week "Talk Like Shakespeare Day!" If you wanna get in on the action (albeit a little late), you can try out a flash application that apparently someone wrote on our website years ago! Just go to the site, and then use the flashcards (and the reload function) to serve yourself random words that you can then incorporate seamlessly into your conversation. Hey, it's what we do during warmups for the show. If we can do it, you can do it, in sooth!

(Also in honor of this illustrious date, you can get $4.45 off tickets to our next show! Get it -- 445th birthday? Isn't that adorable? Just use the code SHAKES when you buy tickets from; it's valid until opening next week.)

Hope we do you proud, ol' Bill! We'd like to think that if you lived long enough to write musicals (and were prescient enough to write them to music played in the 21st century style) they'd have been pretty darn close to these!

Check out Shakespeare: The Musical! Playing April 30th through May 29th. That's right -- May 29th is a Friday. But we can't have shows on the 30th -- that's when Dave is getting married! So closing night is on a Friday. Suck it up. :o) And wish Dave and Amber congratulations!

    I may or may not have just scared off a raccoon that was outside my window with a lightsaber flashlight.
