800 East Grand Avenue
Bold in our commitment to enrich the global theatrical landscape, Chicago Shakespeare Theater creates and advances art to reveal the diversity, power and mystery of the human experience. With an adventurous and enterprising spirit, we explore, at the highest level, the work of William Shakespeare and other leading artists of the theater, engaging audiences and artists in a dynamic, lifelong relationship that bridges countries, cultures and generations.
Established in 1986 to serve the community with dynamic and accessible productions by William Shakespeare, CST's work has expanded over time to include family productions, musicals, new work, and visiting international productions. CST serves as the cultural anchor of historic Navy Pier on downtown Chicago's lakefront and as a cultural ambassador of greater Chicago through our World's Stage Series. As a leading international theater company, CST is committed to making theater an expansive, ever-changing and lifelong relationship.
