The Shakespeare Theatre Company is pleased to announce that in 2009 the Free For All will move from its previous location at Carter Barron Amphitheatre to Sidney Harman Hall.
The Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Free For All is a much-loved Washington tradition, offering free performances of a Shakespearean classic to the general public. This year the Free For All moves to STC's new state-of-the-art theatre Sidney Harman Hall (610 F Street NW; Metro Stop: Gallery Place-Chinatown).
With The Taming of the Shrew, Shakespeare gives us the improbable courtship of the fiery-tongued Katherine by the arrogant Petruchio. But unlike Shakespeare’s other romantic comedies, the play does not stop with the wedding. Shakespeare considers the institution of marriage, the rifts between men and women, and the rough journey toward love. One of Shakespeare’s earliest and most popular comedies, The Taming of the Shrew bursts with disguise, deception and devilment.
Tickets can be obtained free of charge in-person the day of the performance at the Sidney Harman Hall Box Office. Our Box Office staff will begin distributing tickets two hours prior to curtain (please note curtain times do vary). Each person in line is allowed two tickets. Tickets are subject to availability. Seating is reserved and will be at the discretion of House Management.
