ENCORES is a weekly online series highlighting past performances and recalling the rich history of programming on the historic Folger stage.

As many arts and cultural institutions remain closed during this time, these ENCORES provide a way to connect and revisit the breadth of Folger offerings with a wider audience.

Each Friday, a “from the archives” performance will be released on our YouTube channel, introduced by some of our favorite artists, showcasing the best of Folger Theatre, Folger Consort, O.B. Hardison Poetry, and lectures.
