Photos: Commonwealth Shakespeare Company’s 2017 Gala
Commonwealth Shakespeare Company held its 2017 Gala on April Fool’s Day at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, with hundreds of guests braving the Fool’s Day snowstorm in order to attend and be entertained by CSC2 company, offering popular scenes from Shakespeare plays. The gala was the highest grossing in CSC history, raising funds that will be invested into CSC’s 22nd season of Free Shakespeare on the Common next July and August. At Free Shakespeare on the Common, CSC welcomes upwards of 75,000 Greater Bostonians to enjoy free theater under the stars for Shakespeare’s beloved tragedy, Romeo and Juliet. Gala Chairs were Melissa Donovan, Paul Karger, Ashley Karger, Wesley Karger, Ashley Wisneski, and Will Heward.
