It’s been a whirlwind, a lovely cultural whirlwind the last few weeks in Chicago.
I got to see a clever production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer’s Night‘s Dream at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater and at the Art Institute I wandered through their Asian and European galleries.
I loved the Japanese Woodblock prints from the 1960’s and 70’s.

Wandering downtown lead me to the Chicago Cultural Center, which has interesting exhibits. Their Project Onward, a gallery that sells art created by artists with disabilities charmed me. Lots of whimsical and thought-provoking work.

I loved Showboat at the Lyric Opera. Anyone in the city must take this in! I had no idea how much I’d like this musical or how many of the songs were well known.
Although I was leaving for China on Tuesday morning, I couldn’t pass up tickets to Showboat. That was a wise choice. The Lyric put on an excellent production, which knocked me off my feet. For days the songs lingered in my head. By all means go see this if you can.
I just saw that this meme has been closed. Oh, well. I’ll find another or just keep up with these Sunday reviews on my own.
