Last week A.R.T. artists were honored with two Elliot Norton Awards. In addition, Artistic Director Robert Woodruff was honored with a special citation in honor of the 25th Anniversary of the Elliot Norton Awards. Here is the text of Robert’s speech delivered by Gideon:
Thank you for including me in this community the last five years and for sharing a dialogue with my own productions over the last decade. I hope the inventiveness of the extraordinary artists work we brought to Cambridge over the past five seasons will continue to provide fuel for your own risk taking and adventurousness for many years to come.
In honor of Robert Woodruff we wanted to share with you Gideon Lester’s talk on the opening night of Britannicus.
