On Monday, February 4, one hundred and sixty artists, friends and supporters gathered at Eleven Madison Park to celebrate Shakespeare Works in Brooklyn: Theatre for a New Audience’s Capital Campaign for a Permanent Home.

Hosted by co-chairs Audrey Heffernan Meyer, Danny Meyer, Monica Gerard-Sharp, and Ali Wambold; and Honorary Chairs John Turturro and Katherine Borowitz, guests enjoyed the exquisite cuisine of three-star chef David Humm, and opening remarks by Master of Ceremonies F. Murray Abraham. Guest speakers included Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, Department of Cultural Affairs Commissioner Kate D. Levin, and Campaign Honorary Chair Julie Taymor.

The evening raised more than a quarter million dollars for our Campaign, bringing Theatre For a New Audience closer to our fundraising goal to build our new home in the BAM Cultural District.
