American Shakespeare Center's Burbage Award is presented annually in September to honor a person whose work behind the scenes has advanced the enjoyment of the works of William Shakespeare for the delight and instruction of the world.
The award is named for the famous theatrical Burbage family consisting of James (1531-1597) and his sons, Cuthbert (1566-1636) and Richard (1568-1619). James was an actor and impresario who built the original Blackfriars Playhouse for Shakespeare's company of actors in London in 1596. The Burbages pioneered both the outdoor and indoor theatre of Shakespeare's day and fostered the most successful and enduring of the early modern theatre companies: The King's Men.
