Listen to Episode 227 of Slate’s The Gist:
On a past Gist, we gave you drunk Shakespeare. Now, it’s time to see how the bard fares when subjected to sober improvisation. (We think it was sober.) Joey Bland, Blaine Swen, and Steve Waltien join us from Chicago’s Improvised Shakespeare Company. For the Spiel, WBEZ’s Lauren Chooljian explains what makes the Chicago mayoral election a compelling national story.
