‘Love’s Labour’s Lost’ for Shakes Project


And when Love speaks, the voice of all the gods
Makes heaven drowsy with the harmony

Chris returns this spring to the Shakespeare Project of Chicago for its theatrical reading production of Shakespeare‘s comedy Love's Labour's Lost.

The production marks Chris’s first crack at this play, where he'll read the witty lord Berowne opposite Amanda Tanguay as Rosaline, Brian J. Gill as the King of Navarre, and Lydia Berger Gray as the Princess of France.

Barbara Zahora's production merges Shakespeare's witty poetry with the young-love angst (including some awesome tunes) of '80s John Hughes comedies.

The cast also includes Brynne Barnard as Katherine/Jacquenetta, José Antonio Garcia as Don Armado, Peter Garino as Boyet/Dull, Jack Hickey as Holofernes, Peter Eli Johnson as Moth, Robert McLean as Longaville, Kim Richard Mowrey as Sir Nathaniel, David Skidmore as Costard, Grace Smith as Maria, and Tristien Marcellous Winfree as Dumaine.

Music and sound design are by George Zahora; Michelle Shupe is the assistant director.

Love's Labour's runs May 5–9 at six Chicagoland venues. Admission is free. Visit for more info.
