Review for First Folio Theatre, Clarendon Hills, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been to 2 different First Folio summer outdoor productions of Shakespeare plays with my teens. They loved it. My younger teen saw them perform Macbeth the summer before he read the play in school, and declared later that the First Folio production was better than the excerpts of professional audio and film performances that the teacher played forthe class.

Production values are first rate. Acting is wonderful, and they've been nominated for Jeff Awards (Chicago area theater awards). Concepts of staging, lighting, and costuming are very good. They put their own spin on each production without overpowering the Bard.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2010

Role:  General Member of the Public & Have not given them cash or volunteered, but after seeing their work, I did ask another musical group in the area to donate tickets to First Folio's online fundraising event.
