May 13th • Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium

It wasn't The Full Monty, but Kevin Spacey's mini striptease at The Shakespeare Theatre Company's 19th annual gala was enough to stimulate bidding at the event's auction, which raised $32,200, $2,600 of which went for the actor's cummerbund (the lone item he removed). WJLA's Kathleen Matthews, the evening's MC, was responsible for the undressing of Mr. Spacey, who was in town to receive the Will Award for Classical Theatre. Proceeds support this summer's Free for All, when the Carter Barron Amphitheatre in Rock Creek Park becomes the site of two weeks of free Shakespeare. Spellbinding three-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald entertained gala co-chairs Robert E. Falb and Carolyn W. Falb and the evening's honorary patrons, British Ambassdor Sir David Manning and his wife Catherine as well as Reps. Edward Markey and Martin Sabo, Letitia Baldridge, Judith Light, Sabrina LeBeauf, Chris Matthews, Jack Diamond, David Carmen, Suzanne Farrell, Ali Wentworth and Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Landon Butler.
