2017 Folger Gala: Celebrating 25 Years of Folger Theatre

Monday, April 3, 2017

The Folger Shakespeare Library's annual gala is our largest and most significant fundraiser of the year, providing support to the Folger and its impact driving discovery, transforming education, and creating experiences. And, as one of Washington's most elegant social evenings this special event is attended by the leaders of the social, business, government, and diplomatic communities.

Jarrett and Nora Arp and Andrew and Darcy Nussbaum are the 2017 Folger Gala Co-Chairs. The 2017 Gala is celebrating the 25th anniversary of Folger Theatre, the vibrant centerpiece of the Folger’s public programs. In the unique setting of North America’s first Elizabethan-style theater, Folger Theatre produces innovative stagings that have thrilled Washington audiences for decades. In describing Folger Theatre, The Washington Post has said, “Shakespeare should always be so lucky.”
