Tribute Theatre was born out of a deep love and admiration for the endurance of the classics. In these plays, paintings, sculptures and stories something has continued to alight the imagination for centuries, even millennia. What makes the classics endure? Why are Shakespeare and Aristophanes still great? What are the qualities of these works that allow people to connect to them across the span of time?
Humanities artistic history endures, and Tribute appreciates and strives to adapt and advance classics into our world.
This is not to say that we ignore modern plays. Hardly. Classics do not endure out of simply being old. There is something in them that allows them to persist in our theaters. We search out those qualities in modern and new playwrights’ cannons. Our dedication to the performance of new work by new playwrights has only grown since we established in 2010.
