THE PARTY Chicago Shakespeare Theater celebrated its annual gala at Navy Pier, where 350 guests enjoyed a three-course dinner catered by Food For Thought, paired with Van Duzer Vineyards wines and a retrospective program—created by Artistic Director Barbara Gaines, Creative Producer Rick Boynton and Artistic Associate Bob Mason—of the theater’s 25th anniversary season. THE SCENE Floral arrangements and d├ęcor from Bukiety and Frost Lighting added an enchanting and theatrical atmosphere to the space, where costumed performers acted as living art installations. THE BOTTOM LINE Nearly $1 million was raised to benefit the theater’s continuing work to encourage literacy in Chicago Public Schools. Photos by Robert Carl and Michael Litchfield
