Theatre Alums Shine in Chicago Shakespeare Production
NIU School of Theatre and Dance alums Tracy Michelle Arnold and Timothy Edward Kane star in the current production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream," produced by Chicago Shakespeare Theater and being presented at Navy Pier. The show, and in particular the work of Tracy and Tim, has received excellent reviews in several publications.
From the review in the Northwest Indiana Times, reviewer Philip Potempa says "Kane exudes his character, whether in the guise of Duke Theseus or the entrancing King of the Fairies Oberon. He is ideally matched with Arnold as his female force counterpart. Every turn of their heads to the raise of an eyebrow, conveys more than anything that could ever be possible with just words." Mr. Potempa's entire review may be read here.
Katy Walsh, in ChicagoTheaterBeat.com, says "Kane plays it deliciously arrogant and manipulative. The duo is a vaudevillian-style hoot...The target of Kane’s prank is the lovely Tracy Michelle Arnold (Hippolyta, Titania). As duchess or queen, Arnold commits to the joke with sophisticated deadpan." Walsh's full review is here.
