The country’s second largest outdoor theater dedicated to the classics, American Players Theatre (APT) is easily the most magical. The recently renovated 1,088-seat The Hill amphitheater and the 201-seat indoor Touchstone Theatre grace the 110 acres of stunning forests and meadows. (Traversing the moonlit path to the hillside theater alone is something pretty special.) Nine rotating shows run the gamut from sparkling Shakespeare to French farce and back to Russian drama, and the core company works with the industry’s absolute best—many of whom reside in Chicago when not “playing in the woods.”
