Folger Theatre

Folger Theatre
201 East Capitol Street South East

Each year, Folger Theatre produces a three-play season of innovative productions, designed to forge strong connections with modern audiences while continuing the lively legacy of Shakespearean stagecraft.  While Shakespeare is 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. 

Since 1992, Folger Theatre, led by Artistic Producer Janet Alexander Griffin, has staged more than half of the plays in Shakespeare's First Folio. Folger Theatre has received 135 nominations and 24 Helen Hayes Awards, including Outstanding Resident Play for Measure for Measure, Hamlet, and The Taming of the Shrew.
