Dunsinane Feb 26 - Mar 22, 2015  
Chicago Shakespeare Theater Dunsinane
 
London's The Times proclaims, "If it's riveting spectacle, challenging ideas and human drama you want, this is the show to see." Playwright David Greig's captivating sequel to Shakespeare's Scottish play explores one man's attempt to restore peace in a country consumed by war. Macbeth is dead. Under cover of night, the English army has swept in, killed the tyrant and claimed Scotland's seat of power. But efforts to restore order appear futile as the situation spins out of control. Fierce one minute and funny the next, Greig's extraordinary ability to infuse a dark story with rich humor results in a lively, vital examination of power—illuminating uncanny parallels between Scotland's medieval and present-day political landscapes.

Ford Oriental Theatre RAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles
 
As "the next best thing to seeing The Beatles!" (Associated Press), RAIN performs the full range of The Beatles' discography live onstage, including the most complex and challenging songs that The Beatles themselves recorded in the studio but never performed for an audience.

Together longer than The Beatles, RAIN has mastered every song, gesture and nuance of the legendary foursome, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance that's as infectious as it is transporting. From the early hits to later classics ("I Want To Hold Your Hand," "Hard Day's Night," "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," "Let It Be," "Come Together," "Hey Jude" and more), this adoring tribute will take you back to a time when all you needed was love, and a little help from your friends!
