Always well staged, and acted Shakespeare plays. The small size adds to the ambiance.

Shakspeare a side splitter? In the case of this production of "A MidSummer Night's Dream", you betcha. The usual play within a play with Bottom and his friends took center stage. While the rest of the company was as good as it always is and the sets as equally stunnning, Gary Griffen outdid the company's high quality work by amplifying the comic roles with specially chosen comic actors. While every production won't get you laughing this way, I have not seen a funnier play anywhere than this excellent production. And after 7 seasons of tickets at this theater, it ranks as one of the best. Although the usually dominant confusion of lovers was played down and not played as well as the comic roles, the production is a can't miss. Like everything we have seen at CST on the Pier, you can trust that this theatre troupe will always give you a great theater experience.

I just saw A Midsummer Night's Dream and it was fantastic! The stage and theatre were were perfect and the actor's were fantastic. I can't wait to go back and see another play there.

We wnet to see Aladdin at the CST and it was amazing. First time there made me want to go back the next day to see another show. The actors use the entire theatre to tell the story, even running past you in the aisles. It was great to see a classic tale that the company made its own. Any play here would certainly be wonderful and I am looking forward the seeing one of the Bard's plays performed here as well. (oh and after the show, you are at Navy Pier. What a great venue!)
