Shakespeare's Birthday

We will not have a Shakespeare's Birthday Open House in April 2020 because of the building renovation project, but please join us at the National Building Museum this summer for Folger Theatre's A Midsummer Night's Dream (Jul 7 - Aug 30) and other activities in Shakespeare's Playhouse.
