At this Free Folger Friday, explore the Paster Reading Room as both a famous library and theatrical set.

Reserve Your Seats

Love's Labor's Lost scenic designer Lee Savage has brought the Paster Reading Room to the Folger stage this spring. Before the performance, get a behind-the-scenes look at the space itself with Folger Docents Kathleen Kovach and Larry Plotkin, and Folger Theatre Technical Director Charles Flye

Compare and contrast the designs as you move through both the Reading Room and the theater, and learn how designing scenic elements is different from designing permanent structures and spaces.

In addition to the history of both spaces, your guides will be sure to point out easter eggs to spy on stage during that evening's performance.

Join us after this Folger Friday for the 8pm performance of Love's Labor's Lost. Tickets may be purchased online or by calling the Folger Box Office at 202.544.7077.
