The exhibition is free of charge and open to the public, but due to its popularity tickets are highly recommended. Timed admission runs every 30 minutes, and a limited number of drop-in tickets will be available at the Central Library each day. Ticket reservations will be available beginning April 23 to coincide with Shakespeare’s birthday.
Tickets available starting April 23 at noon
These staff-guided experiences are limited to groups of up to 30 people (including teachers and chaperones), and will last approximately 30 minutes. Based on availability, larger groups can book an hour and divide the group into two groups. Email email@example.com for further information about student group visits.
About the Exhibition:
Shakespeare’s First Folio will be available for viewing and opened to the page with “To be or not to be” from Hamlet. Accompanying the rare book will be a multi-panel exhibition exploring the significance of Shakespeare, then and now, as well as the importance of the First Folio. A supplemental exhibition will showcase original props, costumes, photographs, and ephemera from The Old Globe’s 80-year archive and the Darlene Gould Davies Old Globe Theatre Collection, with a focus on the productions of Shakespeare that have made the Globe one of the most important Shakespeare theatres in North America.
In addition there will be a un-ticketed complimentary display in the Hervey Family Rare Book Room adjacent to the art gallery. Publishing Shakespeare will present rare and exquisite editions of work by and about Shakespeare. Drawing from the San Diego Public Library’s rare book collection, the exhibition will include more than 50 beautifully produced books and prints spanning four centuries of publishing and book art.
