Subject: 	Michael Kahn Receives the 2007 Gielgud Award

On May 21 English-Speaking Union and the Shakespeare Guild joined Sir 
David and Lady Manning and key patrons of the Shakespeare Theatre 
Company in a salute to director Michael Kahn.

As part of a gathering that was designed to celebrate this year's 
Shakespeare in Washington festival, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, STC 
Chairman Landon Butler, performers Helen Carey and Ted van Griethuysen, 
and popular BBC host Alan Watson took part in a ceremony at which Mr. 
Kahn received the 2007 Gielgud Award for Excellence in the Dramatic 
Arts. Among the well-wishers who sent messages for the occasion were 
three former Gielgud laureates: Zoe Caldwell, Dame Judi Dench, and 
Christopher Plummer. Other greetings came from actors Keith Baxter (who 
had played Prince Hal to Sir John's Henry IV in the Orson Welles film 
Chimes at Midnight), Stacy Keach, and Dame Maggie Smith, not to mention 
Mayor Adrian M. Fenty, who sent a congratulatory proclamation.

Should you wish to have additional information, including photographs 
and excerpts from remarks by participants in the program, please let us 
know.

Thanks again,
John
