Named “the most consistently excellent theatre company in America” by The Wall Street Journal, Court Theatre is dedicated to discovering and conveying the power of classic theatre.  Sometimes this means an imaginative re-envisioning of a classic work to uncover immediately relevant messages; sometimes it means expanding the definition of what makes a classic into often overlooked areas, such as the African American canon and musical theatre; and sometimes it means exploring more recent works that are sure to become classics.  Whatever your definition, you haven’t seen classic theatre until you’ve seen it at Court.
