Shortly after making his stage-management debut with the company, Chris will return to his regular role as actor in a staged reading of The Tragedy of Julius Caesar for the Shakespeare Project of Chicago.
Chris will feature as Mark Antony alongside Matthew Fahey as Brutus, Mark D. Hines as Cassius, and Peter Garino in the title role. Stephen Spencer directs.
The Shakespeare Project’s “theatrical readings” are full on-book stagings at locations around Chicagoland. The presentations are free to the public. Julius Caesar runs October 23-26.
The cast also includes Nicholas Harazin, Ronald Keaton, James Krag, Diane Mair, Kim Richard Mowrey, Corliss Preston, Tiffany Scott, and Charles Stransky. George Zahora is the sound designer and Corliss Preston is the assistant director.
Chris made his Project debut last spring as the revenger of the title in Thomas Middleton’s The Revenger’s Tragedy and made his stage-management debut last month with the company’s Chicago-premiere production of Tom Stoppard’s Darkside, which incorporates the music of Pink Floyd’s album.
Regular Shakespeare Project patrons should note there will not be performances for this reading at the Newberry Library or Wilmette library. They have been moved to Fourth Presbyterian Church and Wilmette Theatre, respectively.
