Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival Announces the 2020 Season

Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival’s Producing Artistic Director Patrick Mulcahy announced today the 2020 summer season. Continuing his commitment to create world-class theatre in the Lehigh Valley, the Festival’s upcoming season will be another summer of first-rate professional productions by master dramatists. Mulcahy, now in his 17th year leading the Festival, has assembled a diverse and expansive season of classics including masterworks by William Shakespeare, Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning dramas, celebrated 20th-century icons, an epic limited engagement, and a group of acclaimed directors.

“Midsummer dreaming is in our nature at PSF. And in summer 2020, it will be a theme for the season and the heartbeat of the Festival,” says Mulcahy. “Whether it is young lovers pursuing freedom in the wilds, a prince seeking the leadership of a nation, a hardworking father chasing a deferred American Dream, aspiring Broadway dancers seeking that ‘singular sensation,’ a fever dream of war and remembrance, or young women in a bygone era dreaming of lives of their own choosing, PSF is the place this summer where the pursuit of dreams can refresh the spirit.”
