American Shakespeare Festival Theater
William Shakespeare was born in Stratford, England, in 1564. So it was only fitting that Stratford, Connecticut, bearing the name of Shakespeare’s hometown, became the site of the American Shakespeare Festival Theater. 
 
The American Shakespeare Festival Theater opened in 1955. During the 1960s, its performances earned the theater an international reputation. It featured many world-renowned actors and actresses, including Katharine Hepburn, Jessica Tandy, and Hal Holbrook. The theater is no longer used for performances.
