Before the show I had some time to chat with veteran arts critic Dan Zeff and his wife. In our conversation, I mentioned how much I loved plays and they were slightly surprised. I guess when you do as many musicals as Broadway In Chicago does you just assume the “musical” is the thing.
While I love musicals, there is nothing better than a well crafted play. I love hearing the language. It is almost lyrical, especially when it is Shakespeare. Best of all, the stories unfold right in front of you. You should come to see The Merchant of Venice with F. Murray Abraham. It is stunning! And soon we will have “Ann,” a new play with Holland Taylor.
Tell me what plays you have seen lately…
