The Atlanta Shakespeare Company evolved out of a small group of actors doing productions of the Bard's work in borrowed theaters around the city, winding up performing As You Like It at Manuel's Tavern in 1984.

Their ethos of minimalist, true-to-period and audience-inclusive performance grew into the opening of the Shakespeare Tavern in 1990, which has seen over 73 plays cross its stage.
