The Shakespeare Project of Chicago Announces New Board Member
The Board of Directors of The Shakespeare Project of Chicago is pleased to announce the appointment of a new board member, Regina M. Schwartz, who teaches English literature and Law at Northwestern University and is a former president of the Milton Society of America. In 2010, The Shakespeare Project produced Schwartz’ play of John Milton’s “Paradise Lost” at the Newberry Library as part of the Milton Project. David Skidmore, President of The Shakespeare Project’s Board of Directors, stated “We are thrilled to add Regina to our board because of her passion for Shakespeare, her incredible knowledge, and her love and appreciation for what we do.” Artistic Director Peter Garino added, “Regina will help the project’s goal of expanding our outreach to higher education institutions and connections to professional organizations with an interest in Elizabethan and Renaissance drama.” Prior to joining the faculty at Northwestern, Schwartz taught at Duke University for a decade. She is a recipient of Woodrow Wilson and Rockefeller Fellowships, and has been a scholar-in-residence at the Institute for the Advanced Study of Culture in Virginia. She also wrote the libretto for the new opera based on Milton's epic, "Losing Paradise," recently composed by the award-winning composer, John Eaton.

The Shakespeare Project and Snow City Arts
Partnering with Snow City Arts (www.snowcityarts.org), The Shakespeare Project brought to life hospitalized children's "erasure poetry". After a performance of The Project's "50 Minute Hamlet" students at Children's Memorial and Stroger Hospitals worked with Snow City Arts' resident poet Eric Elshtain to tell their own stories by choosing select words from Hamlet's famous "to be or not to be" speech, and erasing the rest. The result is some very moving, personal poetry from some very courageous young people. Click on the link below to experience this moving presentation. www.shakespeareprojectchicago.org/snowcity
