Subject: [Puptcrit] Shakespeare in Washington


 
Hi all,
 
FYI on this magnificent festival tribute to the bard posted below.   Maybe 
they'll be some puppetry?  Events start January and run until  June.  If you're 
going to catch anything, drop me a line.  Our  place is in Silver Spring, just 
over the DC border.
 
Yours,
Ben

FROM Shakespeare in Washington  website:

TO BE OR NOT TO BE  may be the world's most famous question-but for six 
months, the only place  to be is DC. for this spectacular celebration of 
William Shakespeare's  influence on great culture and entertainment.

For more than 400 years,  Shakespeare's plays and poetry have resonated in 
the world's consciousness.  His works have persisted through centuries of 
theatrical interpretations.  They've inspired classic ballets, operas, and 
symphonic suites and been  transformed through the lens of modern themes 
and settings. From film and  Broadway musicals to fashion and the visual 
arts, his imprint can be found  everywhere.

Now, Washington will revel in the genius of Shakespeare  through more than 
100 magnificent presentations by more than 60 arts  organizations. So 
whether you know all the sonnets by heart or are  discovering his work for 
the very first time, Shakespeare in Washington will  bring you closer than 
ever to the man they call "The Bard."

This  celebration was conceived by Michael M. Kaiser, President of the 
Kennedy  Center, and is curated by Michael Kahn, Artistic Director of the 
Shakespeare  Theatre Company.
