This repertory theater is about 65 years old, and has won every award available- including a Tony. It has three theaters, one built after the original Globe; one small,in-the-round indoor site (The Black Swan), and one no-seat-is-not-excellent, indoor, elegant site (the Bowmer). The productions here are better than those in Stratford-on-Avon, England. Shakespearean plays are done in rotation over the years so that all are staged in time. Only the bard's plays are presented in the outdoor theater, but the Black Swan does experimental works, and the Bowmer presents many different, well-known, classic, and contemporary works as well as some Shakespearean plays. Thousands attend these productions, from February to October, each year. This is world class theater.
