A Group Of People Walking In Front Of A Building

From Friday, July 1, 2022 to Tuesday, September 6, 2022 July 1, 2022 September 6, 2022 Riggs Washington DC

The National Building Museum and the Folger Shakespeare Library, in association with the University of South Carolina, are partnering this summer to present The Playhouse. Visitors can step back in time with the Bard for the latest iteration of the Museum’s Summer Block Party. An exciting Festival stage will occupy the Museum’s immense—and air conditioned—Great Hall. By day, the installation will provide a venue for unique experiences related to theater—from behind-the-scenes tours to sword-fighting demonstrations and other hands-on activities. At night, The Playhouse transforms into a stage for Shakespeare’s most famous, fairy-filled comedy for Folger Theatre’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
