Meet the newest Chicago actor: Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer. Breyer will be appearing as the Ghost in "Hamlet" in Hyde Park on Friday, with an encore presentation slated for Saturday.

It's part of this weekend's "Shakespeare and the Law" conference at the University of Chicago Law School. Breyer's performance (part of a collection of scenes from "Hamlet," "As You Like It" and "Measure for Measure") will be open to the public, free of charge, subject to space limitations.
