Shakespeare in Performance

Our Shakespeare in Performance database provides an innovative, searchable resource that appeals to actors, directors, students, scholars, and Shakespeare theatergoers. Although we focus on North American productions, we have worldwide contributors from Australia to Germany. The database also includes graphic illustrations of the plays from earlier periods.

Film entries in Shakespeare in Performance originated, with permission, in the important work by Kenneth Rothwell, Shakespeare on Screen: An International Filmography and Videography (New York: Neal-Schuman, 1990).
