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 Sidney Harman Hall, which provides a state-of-the-art, midsize venue for an outstanding variety of performances, from Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing to Racine's tragic Phèdre to visiting companies like South Africa's Baxter Theatre and its production of Mies Julie. For two weeks in the summer the group performs Shakespeare for free at Sidney Harmon Hall.
