The Komissarzhevskaya Theatre (Russian: Академический драматический театр имени В. Ф. Комиссаржевской) is a theatre in Saint Petersburg named after Vera Komissarzhevskaya.[1] It was founded in 1901 and made stage productions at various locations in St. Petersburg and Moscow, Russia. Her brother, Theodore Komisarjevsky, established a studio of his sister's theatre in New York City in 1939.[2][3] Since 1942, the company is permanently located in St. Petersburg, at 19 Italyanskaya Street in the former "Passage Hall" of the elite department store The Passage. The resident company was named the Komissarzhevskaya Theatre in 1959.
