At the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s star studded Harman Center for the Arts Annual Gala on Oct. 15, F. Murray Abraham received the prestigious Will Award honoring his significant con- tribution to classical theatre in America. Tributes were read from Kevin Spacey and Abraham’s “Amadeus” co-star Tom Hulce. Jerry Stiller brought down the house calling the actor’s tirade to upgrade his room a “better performance in a London hotel than in ‘Amadeus.’ ” After the program that included performances by the Paul Taylor Dance Company, Bill Irwin and Ted Van Griethuysen in a scene from King Lear and a surprise appearance by Christine Ebersole, guests joined in a “cel- ebration parade” to the National Building Museum for dinner and dancing at a Gala After Hours.
