Time Out says

The Year of Chicago Theatre is currently treading the boards and Millennium Park is joining the celebration by hosting a series of free shows that feature some of the city's leading theater companies. The site-specific performances take place at venues throughout the park, integrating the park's architecture and public art into the narratives that each work explores. Like most of Millennium Park's summer programming, admission is free—you can use the money you save to support another local theater production. Take a look at the complete Millennium Park Theatre Series schedule below.
