What a beautiful afternoon with "the arts"! I wasn't too sure about the concept of a hike and a play, and I'm still not convinced of the relationship between the two. No matter, I enjoyed the experience regardless.
"The Three Musketeers" seemed to me (I'm no theatre critic) to be very well done. All of the actors played their roles very well, the play kept my interest, the costumes and props were fine. All in all, I thought it was a wonderful production.
The "stage" itself though, was both the best part, and the most unrelated part to the play. There was not much that could be done to tie the Pullman site into the story, and so there was no real connection for me. On the other hand, the location was a wonderful opportunity to get a glimpse of a beautiful and important historic site, one that otherwise may never be experienced.
I left that afternoon feeling very satisfied - both from enjoying an excellent production, and from taking a step back into Chicago's interesting history. I am excited about trying this same idea again - I believe there is an upcoming production at the Morton Arboretum. I might recommend toting a lawn chair if you don't want to be on your feet for 3 hours straight though. Enjoy! I certainly did!!
A blanket, camping chair and water bottle are suggested.
