Founded in 1984 as a summer festival presenting plays in rotating repertory, St. Louis Shakespeare now offers three Shakespearean works and one non-Shakespeare classic each season. Its home since 1995 has been the beautifully restored Grandel Theater in the Grand Center Arts and Entertainment District of St. Louis, located between Powell Symphony Hall and the Fox Theater on Grand Avenue. Dedicated to producing the Bard’s entire canon, St. Louis Shakespeare has to date presented more than three quarters of his plays, including such seldom-seen works as Troilus and Cressida, King John, and Titus Andronicus, along with plays by such other greats as Aristophanes, Euripides, Feydeau, Molière, Oscar Wilde, G.B. Shaw, Arthur Miller, and Tom Stoppard. (MP)
