Shakespeare Theatre

Shakespeare Theatre Review

This acclaimed troupe crafts fantastically staged and acted performances of works by Shakespeare and other classic playwrights, offering traditional renditions but also some with a modern twist. Complementing the stage in the Lansburgh Theatre is the Sidney Harman Hall, which provides a 21st-century, state-of-the-art, mid-size venue for an outstanding variety of performances, from Shakespeare's Two Gentleman of Verona to Racine's tragic Phèdre to Noël Coward's hilarious Design for Living. For two weeks in late spring the group performs Shakespeare for free at Carter Barron Amphitheatre.
