The three best things to do today in Chicago

Written by
Grace Perry

1. Watch a gender-bending comedy outdoors

Head to Columbus Park for an outdoor production of Twelfth Night, a classic love story: girl gets shipwrecked, girl dresses up as boy, girl falls in love with boy while boy thinks girl is boy. Classic. (Columbus Park, 500 S Central Ave, 6:30pm. Free)

2. Marvel at intricate toy models

Channel your inner child and check out “Brick by Brick,” the Museum of Science and Industry’s all-LEGO exhibition. You’ll see large-scale LEGO models of structures like the Golden Gate Bridge and Disney World’s Cinderella Castle. (Museum of Science and Industry, 5700 S Lake Shore Drive, 9:30am-4pm. $27-$45, children $18-$32)

3. Cheer on Team USA

Watch the Olympics at the outdoor theater NEWCITY has constructed specially for the 2016 games. On tonight: swimming, swimming and more swimming.  (NEWCITY, 1457 N Halsted St, 7pm-11pm. Free)
