Here is a Play Fitted

Explore how staging Shakespeare has changed over the past 400 years. More than 100 items – scripts and promptbooks; designs for sets, lights, and costumes; props, models, production photographs, playbills, letters, and reviews – highlight broad shifts in the stage productions of Othello, Richard III, Romeo and Juliet, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Changes made to the plays over nearly four centuries may surprise you!

The Folger Shakespeare Library is open to the public 10am to 5pm Monday through Saturday, with special exhibition viewing hours on Sundays from 12pm to 5pm. Free, docent-led tours are available Monday through Friday at 11am and 3pm, Saturdays at 11am and 1pm, and Sundays at 1pm.
