Shakespeare Festival

May 19, 2009

Every spring, to support and raise funds for the Shakespeare Festival LA, a few famous names donate their time to participate in a staged reading of a Shakespearean comedy. Co-chaired by Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks, this year's performace was "The Comedy of Errors" and featured Hanks, Wilson, Christina Applegate, Martin Short, Shirley Jones and Peter Graves.
Shakespeare Festival LA, a non-profit theater company,helps to raise funds to teach Shakespeare to kids in an effort to keep them off the street.

A video of the event, from Entertainment Tonight, has been added to the video archives. You can also see Tom Hanks signing autographs outside of Geffen Playhouse on Youtube. As always, very nice with the fans : "Be cool !".

Photos of the event have been added to the gallery, as well as photos from Angels & Demons US press conference and a few others from the shows The View and Good Morning America. You can click on each thumbnail to access the respective album.
