The Chicago Shakespeare Theater (CST) at Navy Pier culminates their season with Macbeth, adapted and directed by Teller (of Penn & Teller fame) and Aaron Posner—the celebrated creative duo behind CST’s The Tempest, winner of the Jeff Award for Best Production in 2015.

Starring Ian Merrill Peakes as Macbeth and Chaon Cross as Lady Macbeth, Shakespeare’s psychological thriller immerses audiences in a world of dark magic and ambition, delving into the twisted psyches of the ultimate power-hungry couple.

This haunting drama of political intrigue and personal frailty where “nothing is but what is not” takes the stage at The Yard at Chicago Shakespeare, the innovative new venue, through June 24th.

Tickets start at $40 and are available for purchase online.
