Folger Theatre is the vibrant centerpiece of performing arts at the Folger Shakespeare Library. In our beautiful, intimate Elizabethan theater, the Folger performs a series of classics reflecting the breadth of the library’s peerless collection. Folger Theatre annually performs a three-play season of innovative productions designed to forge strong connections with modern audiences, continuing the lively legacy of Shakespearean stagecraft. While William Shakespeare’s are central to its mission, the Theatre has produced a variety of other classical works, as well as new plays related to or inspired by Shakespeare. Located a block from the US Capitol, the Folger Shakespeare Library is a unique historic site that may be rented for private events.
