This year’s Shakespeare Anniversary Dinner took place at Lumen, in down town Saint Louis.  Guests were served cocktails and an exquisite meal.  Co-chairs of the event were Kiku Obata and Jessica Holzer.  One of the key speakers from the evening was Christoffer Ware, a highly talented  poet & cast member.  Some of his recent work included Shakespeare in the Streets: The World Begun in Old North St. Louis. Funds from the event benefit Shakespeare Festival St. Louis’ In the Schools, In the Streets and In the Park programming.
