Shakespeare's Globe HAMLET

Sponsorship Opportunities

In September 2012, Folger Theatre will bring the Shakespeare’s Globe Hamlet from London to Washington, DC audiences in a special two-week limited engagement. This venture is a truly unique one for our community. Never before have we been presented with an opportunity that so beautifully bridges these two capital cities—and these two organizations dedicated to Shakespeare’s original words and work. The Globe Hamlet, directed by Dominic Dromgoole, is an eight-actor version of Shakespeare’s beloved masterwork and presents a rare sponsorship opportunity.
