Validated parking cost $14.50 or so. Not too bad but not cheap.

Quotes & Highlights

“Highly recommended! To cut to the chase: the 90-minute, lightening-fast, hip-hop version of Shakespeare’s tragic tale is absolutely brilliant and immense fun!“—_Chicago Sun-Times _
“A killer show … the Q Brothers’ best yet! Their writing is superb: sardonic, wise, smart, funny and, of course, mostly in rhyming couplets.“—Chicago Tribune (4 Stars)
