The Theatre's work is guided by five core values: a reverence for language, a spirit of adventure, a commitment to diversity, a dedication to learning, and a spirit of service. These values inform the Theatre's work with artists, how it interacts with audiences, and how the Theatre manages its organization. The Theatre mounts three to five productions each year, creating a dialogue between Shakespeare and other authors about our lives today. In addition, the Theatre develops and cultivates audiences through extensive audience outreach programs and the largest in-depth arts in education residencies to introduce Shakespeare and classical drama in the New York City Public Schools.
