Chevy Chase has checked back into rehab, his rep confirms to E! News.
The 72-year-old actor is being treated in Minnesota, his rep told TMZ Monday. Chase is receiving treatment for an alcohol-related issue, which his rep called a “tune-up.” The rep also said Chase “wants to be the best that he can be.”
This isn’t the first time Chase has sought treatment. In 1986, at age 43, he checked into the Betty Ford drug rehabilitation center for a painkiller addiction. Good to hear he’s taking care of himself, we swish him the best.
The Globe Theatre is set to live stream a Shakespeare play for the first time in its history.
On September 11, anyone logging on to the Shakespeare Lives website will be able to watch a live performance of “A midsummer Night’s Dream” direct from the theatre on the south bank of London’s river Thames.
Built as a perfect replica of the original Globe Theatre where Shakespeare’s plays were first performed, the new Globe (known as Shakespeare’s Globe) has become one of the English capital’s greatest tourist attractions since it opened in 1997.
The decision to adapt something as ultra-modern as live-streaming in a venue that has been praised for its historical accuracy is part of the Shakespeare Lives Festival – a year-long online digital event created to mark 400 years since the playwright’s passing.
