The Washington Post has given a shout out to the fast-growing Howard County theater troupe Chesapeake Shakespeare Company.
The theater made headlines recently when it announced that it is moving from the county to downtown Baltimore's Mercantile Trust Building in 2014. The move will make it the city's third largest theater company, after Center Stage and Everyman Theatre.
The Mercantile building is currently a nightclub, featuring liquor, a disco ball and a basement bar called the Bedroom. The renovation to turn this nightclub into a theater fit for Shakespeare will take $4 million.
"The expansion into Baltimore is a major development for a $540,000-budget troupe that has grown steadily since it opened a decade ago with a Twelfth Night"
that drew 100 people, the Post writes.
