The American Shakespeare Center’s epic Summer of Shakespeare is in full swing here at the Blackfriars Playhouse! Do you have your tickets yet for The Taming of the Shrew, Measure for Measure, and Much Ado About Nothing? If not, hurry and snag some before it’s too late!

Have you already seen some of the shows and fallen in love with our summer acting company? Well, we’ve got good news! This same group of actors will be BACK on the Blackfriars stage this fall! Curious about casting? We’ve already announced our incredible Much Ado About Nothing cast, the production that begins this summer and will remount in the fall as well, BUT we’re excited to share new information about casting for our other fall titles: Hamlet and Coriolanus.
