I would say to pay for Navy Pier parking because it is convenient and they do validate. Went from being $22 to $12.60. It was worth it.

Description

Shakespeare’s brilliant contemporary and rival playwright, Christopher Marlowe, penned Edward II at the end of his brief life. Now, his vicious exploration of power and persuasion explodes on to the stage in this innovative promenade production, directed by The Hypocrites’ Sean Graney, where standing audience members are able—and encouraged—to move freely about the playing area throughout the 75-minute performance. Edward II marks a CST debut for both Marlowe and Graney.
