Harman Center Gala
The Harman Center for the Arts Annual Gala celebrated Michael Kahn’s 25 years at the helm of the Shakespeare Theatre Company on Oct. 17 in over the top style, as was to be expected. The attendees were a Who’s Who of Washington from the Supreme Court to theater elite. The gala performance showcased the Broadway cast of West Side Story, the Joffrey Ballet and Denyce Graves among other memorable performances that included the actors of the Shakespeare Theatre Company wowing the house. Legendary appearances included Edward Albee, Pat Carroll, Chelsea Clinton, and Terrence McNally. The festivities continued as mimes guided guests to a post-performance gala dinner and frivolity at the National Building Museum.
