"See world-class Shakespeare. Marvelous Molière. Exciting new productions of American classics. Or new plays that challenge and incite," promise the sponsors of this event. The Arena Stage, the Folger, Ford's, Gala Hispanic, the National, the Roundhouse, Shakespeare, Signature, Studio, Woolly Mammoth.
