Coming This Fall

We are teaming up with Origin Theater's 1st Irish Festival to bring a bit of
the Emerald Isle to NYC's Original Shakespearean Pub Crawl. Along with our crowd-pleasing
Shakespearean scenes, we'll also include a scene from one of Ireland's great playwrights!

New York Shakespeare Exchange offers innovative theatrical programming that explores what happens when contemporary culture is infused with Shakespearean poetry and themes in unexpected ways. 

We provide fresh points of entry to the work so that modern audiences will be exposed to the intrinsic power of Shakespeare. 

Our goal is to encourage an enthusiastic appreciation of classical theater and to expand the reach of the art form within new and existing audiences.
