"En route," the revelatory, four-star, sold-out performance experience staged on and through the streets of Chicago, will be extended through Sept. 17, Chicago Shakespeare Theater is slated to announce Friday.
The Australian originator of the piece, the theater company One Step at a Time Like This, was scheduled to leave Chicago on Sunday, but one of the creators, Paul Moir, has agreed to remain in Chicago for an additional five weeks. A group of specially trained local actors will now join Moir, "en route." Tickets for the extension will be available Friday, by phone only at the Chicago Shakespeare box office at 312-595-5600. As the capacity of the show continues to be very small, those tickets are likely to go fast.Copyright © 2015, RedEye
