Thursday at the CST with Bob











Another round of sketches from Navy Pier where the Chicago Shakespeare Theater makes its home!

A long, long, long time ago I saw Sunday in the Park with George in New York, starring Mandy Patinkin and Bernadette Peters. It was fabulous. When we headed out to Chicago Shakespeare Theater on Halloween night to see CST's latest version of the show I must admit I was afraid. I couldn't imagine how it could live up to a show I loved and that had been further polished by fond memories. SURPRISE! Jason Daneley, as George Seurat, and Carmen Cusack, as Dot, did not disappoint - they were fabulous! The show was great. It was a night of treats.

The scribbled sketches were colored later at home. The CST logo is from the program.

I love your sketches - always! I was wondering how this production would be - glad to hear you liked it.

Thanks ladies!
This show ranks as one of my favorites at CST but even if the show is not a real winner the sets are always great!
