Review: Christina, The Girl King (Cor Theatre)

Cor Theatre’s U.S. premiere of Christina, The Girl King, based on the true story of the enigmatic 17th century Queen Christina of Sweden, is a daring, sensitive reintroduction to the flamboyant intellectual and feminist before her time. It features (from left) Toya Turner as Queen Christina of Sweden, Adam Gutkin as Karl Gustav and Tony Bozzuto as Axel. Performances are March 17-April 9 at the Frontier Theatre, 1106 W. Thorndale in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood. Tickets: CorTheatre.org or call (866) 811-4111 Photo credit: Matthew Gregory Hollis
