Chicago-Shakespeare-Presents-HENRY-VIII-430-616-20130206

Chicago Shakespeare Theater (CST) presents Henry VIII, for the first time in CST's history, staged by the masterful hand of Artistic Director Barbara Gaines, whose vision provides audience members the opportunity to discover Shakespeare's unparalleled insight into the collective human condition. As the sordid tale unfolds of England's most opulent king-notorious for his habit of wedding and beheading-Anne Boleyn rises to power, Queen Katherine is ousted from her throne, and the political machinations and exploits of a king's reign are laid bare. Chicago Shakespeare's Henry VIII plays in CST's Courtyard Theater April 30-June 16, 2013.
