The Atlanta Shakespeare Company performs at the New American Shakespeare Tavern,
located at 299 Peachtree Street in Atlanta, and can be contacted at
The Atlanta Shakespeare Company produces professional productions of plays in
the manner (as far as we can know) that the author intended. That is, there is
no time travel (the Henry plays will not take place in Baghdad, Kosovo, or any
place other than where they are set), and the Shakespeare texts are generally
taken from the First Folio (when available, of course).
The remainder of the 2007-08 season includes Much Ado About Nothing (June 6-
July 6, 2008), and A Midsummer Night's Dream (July 10 - August 13, 2008).
Performance dates, ticket prices, information about the Company, and other items
are available on the website.
