More details are coming in about the Shakespeare Theatre Gala After Hours, which yours truly, along with her boyfriend forever Jason Kampf (CoVant), is co-chairing.Â Did I mention this is how we met last year? We were assigned to be co-chairs and had never met (amazing for this large village called DMV). While we found out later, we had been in the same room over the past 10 years probably quite often and in fact knew many of the same people in the charity, business and social worlds, we did not know each other.Â The universe has mysterious ways of waiting until the time is right and then. Kaboom! It’s time. Thus, we are the product of a true Shakespeare in Love Story. I know. I’ll stop before you start heaving too much.
At any rate, we are both honored to have the opportunity to share this fun event which honors greatness in theatre namely Shakespearean performing artists, like this year’s Will Award Honoree F. Murray Abraham.Â Abraham won an Oscar for Amadeus (one of my parents’ favorite films) and has been on the stage for Othello, Richard II, Merchant of Venice, King Lear, Midsummer’s Night Dream and on and on and on AND held a plethora of parts on the small and large screens and… AND…Wait for it. Will be recurring character in the popular and Emmy award winning drama Homeland. Whoohoo!
After the show and awards which will also feature the always hilarious Jerry Stiller, we will walk over to the National Building Museum from the Harman Center in our black tie formal attire and make our way to cocktails, nabbing bites from Design Cuisine, wines by Constellation, groove to music by DJ D Macand chill out in various seating arrangements done in a whole Art Deco theme.Â More to come.
We thank our friends at Brightest Young Things for partnering. Tickets are $95 and there will be a special price for couples and groups. Please click HERE.Â Feel free to contact me directly with questions email@example.com.
