Chicago Shakespeare Theater shows its cheeky side as the company takes on a bawdy French farce The Heir Apparent, adapted from Jean-François Regnard's 1708 masterpiece. Staged by Tony Award-winning director John Rando, this romp is another hilarious retooling of a classic from acclaimed playwright David Ives, creator of CST's wildly popular The School for Lies and A Flea in Her Ear. The play centers around young Eraste, a bon vivant who has it all -- good looks, a beautiful fiancée and the prospect of a sizable inheritance from an elderly uncle. There's a snag: the uncle won't die, and he has bequeathed his entire fortune to someone else. It'll be up to Eraste's resourceful servant Crispin to save the day using disguises and his quick wits. This amusing comedy of mistaken identity will be performed entirely in rhyming verse -- spiced with contemporary slang -- at the Courtyard Theater on Navy Pier.
