Shakespeare Folio tours U.S. in 2016

In the canon of Western literature, William Shakespeare's First Folio is "the jewel of our house." Published by the playwright's colleagues in 1623, just a few years after his death, this extraordinary book contains 36 plays and is the sole source for such immortal works as Macbeth, The Tempest and As You Like It. Without First Folio, our theater, our culture, our very language would be incalculably impoverished.
