Power Plays: Inside Washington Today, as Reported by William Shakespeare

Join an evening of drama, ideas, laughter, and stories when William Shakespeare's ancient insights are applied to today's political escapades by presidential advisor and leadership guru David Gergen; ex-foreign aid official, scholar, and scriptwriter Carol Adelman; Shakespearean actor, teacher, and master of the stage Michael York; government-maven-turned-Shakespeare-whiz Ken Adelman, and the Shakespeare Theatre Director Michael Kahn. All five will provide key insights into today's political machinations while delivering Shakespearean passages and raising edu-tainment to new heights.

Festival: 2007
