"Folger Theatre is on a hot streak..."— DCist
Folger Theatre has announced its season of exciting plays in unique venues.
Progress for the Folger Shakespeare Playhouse in the gorgeous atrium of the National Building Museum continues, and we eagerly anticipate bringing A Midsummer Night's Dream to the stage. The Building Museum’s Summer Block Party, of which the Folger Shakespeare Playhouse is the centerpiece, will engage audiences by day and host this exciting production of Shakespeare’s beloved comedy by night.
Nathan the Wise, produced in association with Theater J, continues to be on hold and we look forward to staging that production in the 2021/22 season. While exact dates are not yet available, Round House and Folger Theatre are working to reschedule The Tempest.
We are creatively at work on ways we can continue to enjoy your company in the meantime. Tapping into the ingenuity of our artists and richness of our archives, we hope that you have been enjoying the variety of new programs that we have launched, such as ENCORES, our monthly book club and virtual poetry readings and Consort performances.
Subscription benefits will continue throughout the Folger renovation. Guarantee your seats, enjoy free exchanges, secure discounts to area restaurants and businesses, receive additional benefits from our partnering theaters, and save by becoming a subscriber.
