The Merchant of Venice by Invictus Theatre Co – Recommended

(My full report will be on the November 3rd edition of Playtime on WCGO Radio 1590: Because of the delay in my official report going public, I wanted to share this excellent show here on my blog.)

UPDATE: Here is a link to a transcript of my report plus audio of the report itself.

I saw Invictus Theatre Co‘s The Merchant of Venice at Pride Arts Center last night and it was fantastic. Set in Fascist Italy (1938), this production is no comedy. Instead, it reminds us that dystopias aren’t always recognizable by those who benefit from them.

The show runs through November 17th, so don’t delay in getting your tickets. The production takes place at 4147 N Broadway (The Buena) Chicago, IL 60613.

Trip Tips

Parking in the area is mostly free, so it can be hard to find a spot. Either add extra time to your trip, take public transit, rideshare, or try out a parking app like Spot Hero.

I can recommend two casual dining options that are very close to the Theater: The first is Siam Noodle and Rice for tasty Thai food or North Buena Deli for fresh sandwiches.
