Polonsky Shakespeare Center

Polonsky Shakespeare CenterTheatre for a New Audience has been a performance powerhouse for over 30 years. In the span of 3 decades, they have produced more than 28 Shakespeare plays and over 60 master works in total. This award-winning theatre has the distinct honor of being the first American company to perform an actual Shakespeare play, Cymbeline, in Stratford-upon-Avon at the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2001. They returned in 2007 with their performance of Merchant of Venice. Needless to say, this invigorating theatre is a must-see for all lovers of the arts.

The company isn’t limited to putting on Shakespeare works, and extends its focus to American classical theatre. Theatre for a New Audience is dedicated to reinvigorating generations to come in the art of these iconic plays and more.

Their location in Brooklyn, the Polonsky Shakespeare Center, will be celebrating its first anniversary on October 22nd! The company is excited to inspire a community with this artistic vision, and enthusiastically embraces its first permanent location in Downtown Brooklyn Cultural District, and looks forward to reigniting a passion for the fine arts in the area, and is ready to welcome future artists.
