The Folger Spotlight

What's On at the Folger

A Year to Remember: 1932 in Music

Folger Theatre’s ‘Love’s Labor’s Lost’ is set in roughly 1932—the year the Folger Shakespeare Library opened its doors to the public—and celebrates the Folger’s exquisite architecture, as well as the era’s glamorous post-flapper fashion. In its honor, we present a playlist of songs from or related to that auspicious year.
