The Acting Company was founded forty years ago by John Houseman, Margot Harley, Kevin Kline, Patti LuPone, David Ogden Stiers and a dozen other young actors with a singular mission to bring a touring repertory of classic plays to colleges and communities with little or no access to live theater. Since 1972, those tours have reached 48 states, 10 foreign countries and three and a half million people while building diverse audiences and developing 350 actors—including Rainn Wilson, Frances Conroy, Jeffrey Wright, Harriet Harris, Keith David and Jesse L. Martin. The Company’s 40th Season productions include Shakespeare’s As You Like It, at The New Victory Theater, March 1-10. http://theactingcompany.org/
