Gielgud Centenary Gala on April 19 in London
As you may have heard, The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, The Royal
Shakespeare Company, and The Shakespeare Guild are joining forces for an
April 19 gala at the Gielgud Theatre that will commemorate the one
hundredth anniversary of Sir's John's birth.
BBC personality Ned Sherrin will serve as master of ceremonies for a
cast to be led by Judi Dench and Paul Scofield. Among the other
presenters for a program that will feature vignettes, anecdotes, and
tributes to the Gielgud legacy will be Clive Francis, Peter Hall, David
Hare, Rosemary Harris, Martin Jarvis, Barbara Jefford, Michael
Pennington, Ian Richardson, and Donald Sinden.
