Gorilla Tango's Bikini Shakespeare returns with its latest installment, BIKINI SHAKESPEARE: THE TEMPEST, which performs Thursdays at 9pm, March 7-April 25, 2013 at Gorilla Tango Bucktown (1919 N. Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago IL 60647). Tickets are $15; to purchase tickets visit www.gorillatango.com or call 773-598-4549.
This island romp features the bikinis and speedos you can't resist, with the hilarity and poetry of Shakespeare! Watch as Prospero toys with the lives of some unsuspecting ship-wrecked courtiers, just as they had toyed with his in a time long forgotten. Magic, spirits, monsters, power, and love all come into play as Prospero spins a web of revenge and redemption.
