Staple of the Chicago theatre scene Guy Adkins passed away last night after a lengthy battle with colon cancer. Although we unfortunately did not have the opportunity to see his work, his reputation is far-reaching in our community. Chris Jones mentions his performances in The Producers at Marriott Theatre and Hamlet at Court Theatre as career highlights, noting that he worked at almost all of the major theaters in town over the last two decades. Adkins was 41 years old.
