Fodor's Review

This acclaimed troupe crafts fantastically staged and acted performances of works by Shakespeare and other significant 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 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 visiting theatres

like South Africa's Baxter Theatre and their production of Mies Julie. For two weeks in the summer the group performs Shakespeare for free at Carter Barron Amphitheatre.
