Original Shakespeare plays soon on display at CU Boulder

First Folio, the original compilation of Shakespeare’s 36 plays, will be on display at the University of Colorado Boulder’s First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare exhibition from Aug. 9-31. This unique viewing opportunity commemorates this year’s 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. TheFirst Folio! exhibition at the CU Art Museum is open to the public and free of charge, yet reservations are strongly encouraged and can be scheduled through Brown Paper Tickets.

First Folio is the first complete collected edition of Shakespeare’s plays, published by two of Shakespeare’s fellow actors in 1623, seven years after his death. The renowned publication preserves 36 of Shakespeare’s theatrical works, 18 of which were not printed prior to the publication. Without First Folio, many of Shakespeare’s most famous plays would not be known or available today, including Macbeth, Julius CaesarTwelfth NightThe Tempest and Antony and Cleopatra.

Viewers will be able to get up close and personal with the most quoted line from Shakespeare’sHamlet, “to be or not to be,” and the exhibition will provide visitors with interactive Shakespearean activities and a multi-paneled exhibition regarding Shakespeare’s impact on both historical and contemporary societies.
