We just recently discovered performances at the Folger after living in Washington for 30+ years. We've been missing out. The building exterior is an interesting art deco structure. The exhibit space is small but has interesting information and the exhibit space has a real Elizabethan Great Hall feel.
The theater is terrific. It's a comfortable space, again constructed along Elizabethan lines. Anyone who missed their recently-closed Henry V really missed out. Best Shakespeare performance I've ever seen.
The ticket office staff is also extremely helpful. It's just a block from the Capitol and Library of Congress, so It wouldn't be fun to try to get to a weeknight performance. But accessibility and parking on weekends are good.
There's an elevator up the short flight of entrance stairs for accessibility and the staff is unbelievably helpful with people with mobility issues. Inside, there's no elevator up to the balcony, so anyone with accessibility issues should get tickets on the main floor.
