Chicago’s enduring summer theater festival, Theater on the Lake, housed in the building at Fullerton Avenue and Lake Shore Drive, is gearing up to celebrate its 60th season.
Time Out Chicago:
The Chicago Park District today announced the 2012 slate for Theater on the Lake. Co-curators Michael Patrick Thornton and Meghan Beals McCarthy selected eight recent theater productions from around the city to be remounted for one week each at the open-air facility at Fullerton Avenue and Lake Shore Drive, with highlights including the Inconvenience's recent hot ticket Hit the Wall, the Building Stage's percussive adaptation of Moby-Dick and Redtwist's Jeff-nominated Opus.
The Chicago Park District’s Theater on the Lake: The Chicago Summer Theater Festival turns 60 this year and is proud to announce the eight artistically diverse Chicago theater companies that will receive encore presentations from June 13 – Aug. 5, 2012. Each production will be performed for five evenings only at the theater at Fullerton Avenue and Lake Shore Drive.
Theater on the Lake, the Chicago Park District-sponsored enterprise offering semi-outdoor shows at Fullerton Avenue on the shore of Lake Michigan, has announced its 2012 season, including another chance to see the sold-out show "Hit the Wall" by The Inconvenience, the Ike Holter drama about the Stonewall riots that sparked long lines of potential patrons this spring outside the Steppenwolf Garage Theatre.
Each year, the Chicago Park District develops a 5-Year plan of capital projects and District-wide
