Red Bull Theater (New York, NY) brings rarely seen classic plays to dynamic new life for contemporary audiences. Their work unites a respect for tradition with a modern sensibility.Red Bull Theater is named for the rowdy Jacobean playhouse that illegally performed plays in England during the 12 years of Puritan rule, and was the first London theater to reopen after the Restoration. This bold spirit is central to their identity. With the Jacobean plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries as their cornerstone, Red Bull Theater is New York City’s destination for dynamic performances of great plays that stand the test of time. The company also produces new works that are in conversation with the classics.
