Are there some things money can’t buy? What are our obligations to each other as citizens? Come participate in an evening of dramatic interpretations and public debate. This one-night-only event will include Shakespeare readings by Chicago Shakespeare actors, along with a lively town hall-style conversation with the audience conducted by Harvard professor and best-selling author Michael Sandel. The evening explores how money and markets shape our values and beliefs—the subject of Sandel’s recent book, What Money Can’t Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets.
This program, originally created by the Public Theater (Artistic Director, Oskar Eustis; Executive Director, Patrick Willingham) Public Forum program and the Aspen Institute Arts Program (Director, Damian Woetzel) premiered in 2013 to a sold-out audience at the Delacorte Theater in New York's Central Park.
