Upcoming Performances

May 26 – July 30, 2023

Shakespeare & Company presents the Tony Award-winning playwright Ken Ludwig’s Dear Jack, Dear Louise – the story of two strangers introduced through letters, kept apart by war, and drawn together through shared stories of their lives, hopes, and fears. A comedic and touching look at life in 1942 complete with nods to music, theater, and literature. Dear Jack, Dear Louise was inspired by the World War II courtship of Ludwig’s parents.

July 22 – August 27, 2023

August Wilson’s Fences, winner of both the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play in 1987, is set in the 1950s and is part of the playwright’s acclaimed American Century Cycle.

August 01 – September 10, 2023

Athenians mix it up with the forest fairies in this raucous romp that features magical meddling, romantic tangles, and a play within a play for good measure. One of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies, A Midsummer Night’s Dream has been described by scholars as carnivalesque: pushing the plot forward through humor and chaos.

August 05 – August 20, 2023

The world premiere of Golda’s Balcony was produced at Shakespeare & Company in May 2002 and went on to become the longest-running one-woman play in Broadway history. The inspiring story of Golda Meir – Russian immigrant, American school teacher, and fourth Prime Minister of Israel – returns, staged at the Elayne P. Bernstein Theatre and featuring Annette Miller reprising her original performance.

September 01 – September 03, 2023

Murder both intentional and accidental as well as madness both piteous and pretended will haunt the Tina Packer Playhouse as Shakespeare & Company presents a three-performance reading of William Shakespeare’s most memorable tragedy: Hamlet. This limited run will be directed by Shakespeare & Company Founding Member Kevin G. Coleman, a two-time Tony Award nominee for Excellence in Education.

September 15 – October 22, 2023

On a summer night, in the middle of a field on their midwest farm, a long-married couple sits on folding chairs to observe the seven stages of a lunar eclipse. While watching the celestial phenomenon unfold, the two sip bourbon and reflect on land and legacy, on children and dogs, and the accelerating passage of time. Lunar Eclipse is a new work by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies (Dinner With Friends, Time Stands Still, Collected Stories), making its World Premiere at Shakespeare & Company.
