My friends,

As a founding Board Member of the NY Shakespeare Exchange, I take great pride in seeing the tremendous growth in creativity this troupe generates through live experiences and digital innovations. Whether it's on stage, online, in a classroom, or a bar room, the art resonates as clearly now as when the Bard first wrote the verse.

Our 2018 season -- our EIGHTH year -- is getting underway and we're asking for your support of our mission to reach new audiences in interesting ways.

New York Shakespeare Exchange is doing incredible work and I am committed to helping them. Over the next few weeks we need to raise $35,000 to keep the company growing and thriving. This funding will support the company's upcoming Diversity Cohort New Play Festival, the international expansions of The Sonnet Project short film initiative, the next manistage production in Fall 2018, and plenty of revelry at ourShakesBEER Pub Crawls.

Please donate today and help me reach my goal!

Thank you
