Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Artistic Director Michael Kahn invites theatre-lovers to the final evening of intimate conversations about his career in D.C. as he prepares to step down as Artistic Director. Open, unrehearsed and off the record, invited speakers will swap anecdotes and share memories about Michael Kahn’s 33 years directing at the Shakespeare Theatre Company. This final Michael Kahn and Friends: Off the Record will focus primarily on the expansion of the Shakespeare Theatre Company in its largest home: Sidney Harman Hall (2007-2019).

On June 3, audiences are invited to join Michael and STC Affiliated Artists: NANCY ROBINETTE, DAVID MUSE and VEANNE COX with moderator TOM STORY as they discuss their favorite performances onstage, backstage antics and offstage tales. In October 2007, after three years of construction, Sidney Harman Hall opened with a sold-out gala celebration. Sidney Harman Hall features 761 seats and a flexible stage design for a variety of performances. The larger venue—in addition to the Lansburgh Theatre—allowed for even more programming and events, such as Happenings Happy Hours, which offer free performances from a wide variety of disciplines. The beloved D.C. summer tradition of Free For All, allowing all audiences to experience Shakespeare for free, also moved indoors to the Harman allowing for performances rain or shine and at matinees. It was during this exciting time that the Shakespeare Theatre Company received the 2012 Regional Theatre Tony Award, bringing national acclaim and recognition to the theatre.
