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.

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)


Othello: The Remix is recommended for mature audiences.
