FROM Shakespeare in Washington website:

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.
