This summer, celebrate William Shakespeare’s 450th birthday at the Philadelphia Museum of Art! Wednesday Nights come alive with unique adaptations by local Shakespeare theatre companies.

Revolution Shakespeare presents Orson Welles’s play Five Kings (1938) in a unique episodic format. Welles created, directed, and starred in Five Kings, an adaptation of Henry IV Parts 1 and 2; Henry V; and Holinshed's Chronicles, a primary source Shakespeare used for a number of his plays. Revolution Shakespeare will remount a streamlined version of the production, the first such adaptation in more than 70 years. Directed by Tom Reing and broken down into five one-hour episodes, this will be an unprecedented theatrical event celebrating Shakespeare’s birth.

Because of the location of this performance, seating is limited. We apologize for any inconvenience
