Subject: 	Shakespeare Behind Bars included in Shakespeare in Washington 
Festival

Gentles,

Films, is privileged to be included in the six month long Shakespeare in 
Washington Festival.

SBB will screen the month of March at the AFI Silver Theatre in Silver 
Springs, MD.

Shakespeare in Washington

TO BE OR NOT TO BE may be the world's most famous question-but for six 
months, the only place to be is DC. for this spectacular celebration of 
William Shakespeare's influence on great culture and entertainment.

For more than 400 years, Shakespeare's plays and poetry have resonated 
in the world's consciousness. His works have persisted through centuries 
of theatrical interpretations. They've inspired classic ballets, operas, 
and symphonic suites and been transformed through the lens of modern 
themes and settings. From film and Broadway musicals to fashion and the 
visual arts, his imprint can be found everywhere.

Now, Washington will revel in the genius of Shakespeare through more 
than 100 magnificent presentations by more than 60 arts organizations. 
So whether you know all the sonnets by heart or are discovering his work 
for the very first time, Shakespeare In Washington will bring you closer 
than ever to the man they call "The Bard."

This celebration was conceived by Michael M. Kaiser, President of the 
Kennedy Center and is curated by Michael Kahn, Artistic Director of the 
Shakespeare Theatre Company.
