“Shakespeare at Yale Rep” Exhibit
Location is wheelchair accessible
Since its founding in 1966, the Tony Award®-winning Yale Repertory Theatre has championed innovative re-imaginings of classic dramas—a mission that compliments its profound commitment to producing new plays. Drawing on a rich array of Yale Rep records housed in Yale Manuscripts and Archives, “Shakespeare at Yale Rep” features production photographs and posters that illuminate the theatre’s rich history of staging Shakespeare’s dramas, from Alvin Epstein’s landmark productions in the 1970s to more recent re-imaginings by Bill Rauch and Mark Lamos. This exhibit, hosted by the Gallery at the Whitney Humanities Center, illustrates extraordinary work done at Yale by some of the American theatre’s most accomplished artists, who for more than four decades have brought Shakespeare’s intricate, expansive plays to life for contemporary audiences.
