A Happy Week for Theater-Lovers

Those who enjoy the works of Shakespeare and other dramatists will be
pleased to learn about two opportunities to savor the performing arts
during the days ahead.

Tonight, as part of a new "Spotlight on Theater" series at the Corcoran
Gallery of Art (500 17th Street NW), you have a chance to meet and talk
with playwright Ken Ludwig, who has graced our repertory with such
award-winning Broadway and West End triumphs as "Crazy for You," "Lend
Me a Tenor," and "Moon over Buffalo." Mr. Ludwig is hoping that actress
Anne Heche will win the Tony for which she's been nominated in
"Twentieth Century," a Roundabout Theatre production in which she and
her co-star Alec Baldwin are delighting audiences on 42nd Street in
Manhattan. In the interim he's relishing the Charles MacArthur Award he
garnered a few weeks ago for "Shakespeare in Hollywood," a comedy he
scripted for the Royal Shakespeare Company, and one that enjoyed its
initial run at Washington's own Arena Stage in September and October.
The discussion begins at 7:30 p.m., and admission for those who respond
to this message is only $15. For tickets you may either reply to the
ESU, using the contact details at the bottom of this message, or to the
Corcorcan, by calling 202-639-1770.

Meanwhile, the English-Speaking Union is delighted to announce that the
winner of our 1997 Shakespeare Competition for the National Capital
Region -- Erica Rose of High Point High School in Prince George's
County, Maryland -- is playing the pivotal role of Margaret from now
till Sunday night, June 6, in the superb "Much Ado About Nothing" that
is being mounted by The Shakespeare Theatre at Carter Barron
Amphitheatre. Ms. Rose has kindly offered to reserve free seats for
anyone who wishes to attend. You may reach her by mobile telephone at
917-804-9137 or by e-mail at
