Robin Hood | Morton Arboretum | Theater & Performance | Chicago Reader

Robin Hood Recommended The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Saturdays, Sundays. Continues through July 31 2010

Directed by Dan Scurek for Theatre-Hikes, Scott Lynch-Giddings's version of the famous English folktale combines charming Elizabethan-style verse, nail-biting swordplay, a ramble through the Morton Arboretum, and a moral. As the audience travels with Robin and his Merry Men from scene to scene, the kindhearted thief delivers the valuable lesson, "'Tis deeds not titles must be honors gauge." Some of the show's funniest moments come when Geraldine Dulex's headstrong Lady Marian disguises herself as a young page to lead the Merry Men back to their captured leader. --Marissa Oberlander

Price: $8-$19
