Presented by the Juilliard School

In a rare appearance outside of New York and for the first time in Chicago, the celebrated Juilliard School brings two different productions to the MCA: Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, directed by Joe Dowling; and Christopher Marlowe’s Edward II, directed by Sam Gold.
