Cast Announced For Robert Falls' THE WINTER'S TALE At Goodman Theatre Photo Cast Announced For Robert Falls' THE WINTER'S TALE At Goodman Theatre
by A.A. Cristi - Apr 18, 2019

Artistic Director Robert Falls reimagines The Winter's Tale-one of William Shakespeare's final and most wildly theatrical works-following celebrated revivals of Measure for Measure (2013) and King Lear (2006) at Goodman Theatre. Hailed as "no modern director better at making a play's iconic moments pop with fresh irreverence" (Chicago Tribune), Falls has cast a 19-member company of Chicago's new and familiar faces. In The Winter's Tale, a jealous king accuses his wife of infidelity, setting off a calamitous series of events. But what begins as tragedy evolves, unexpectedly, into a fantastical journey-from wrath to redemption to reconciliation.

And rightly so: after all, Queen Victoria and her husband, Prince Albert, are largely credited with popularizing Christmas traditions in Britain. Between these royals and the legacy of Dickens' beloved tale, nothing says 'Christmas' quite like carolers in top hats and gas lamps glowing in the London fog.
