For this Throwback Thursday, I found this great picture of The Shakespeare Festival in Stratford, CT. The festival was founded by my father, Lawrence Langner (who adored Shakespeare) in 1955.
The theatre ran for nearly 30 years and closed in 1982. On the 25th of September, the town of Stratford will decide its future and whether to bring back the Festival.
A great theatre lover, David D. Reed is eagerly hoping so and a few weeks ago he hosted a wonderful celebration in the hopes that Stratford will continue the wonderful tradition of Shakespeare on his 450th Birthday!
Marilyn and I went up to Stratford for this celebration and we had such a wonderful time. We sincerely believe that David Reed is the man who can make this glorious dream come true!
