Who wants to see some free Shakespeare? The Shakespeare Theater Company is doing their annual Shakespeare Free For All, where they provide free performances to the public every summer. As I understand it, they used to be in a park, but now they are back in their theater, which is a really beautiful venue. And The Taming of the Shrew is one of my favorite of the Bard’s comedies. So, if you’re thinking you’d like to see a professional play before the summer is over, but $15 seems like a lot, you can’t beat free. If you saw 10 Things I Hate About You and want to see the original, you can’t beat The Taming of the Shrew. Or, if you are in Gallery Place and need some culture, you can’t beat the Shakespeare Theater at 610 F St, NW.


Here's the schedule for their shows:

  1. We are thinking the 8pm show on Saturday. Tickets go on sale at 6pm(we think) so we were thinking about meeting there at about 4pm.
