Fodor's Review

The library's theater, an intimate 250-seat re-creation of the inn-yard theaters in Shakespeare's time, hosts three to four productions a year of Shakespearean or Shakespeare-influenced works. Although the stage is a throwback, the sharp acting and inspired direction consistently challenge and engage audiences.
