This year, the American Shakespeare Center honored two individuals who have proven themselves invaluable to the Shakespeare community in general and to the ASC in particular.
The Robin Goodfellow Award is presented to a person whose work and generosity on behalf of the American Shakespeare Center have helped us grow and contribute to our mission to recover the joys and accessibility of Shakespeare's theatre, language, and humanity by exploring the English Renaissance stage and its practices through performance and education. It's the ultimate thank-you note to someone this company holds very dear to its heart.
Annually the American Shakespeare Center, as part of its mission of promoting the works of William Shakespeare, gives the Burbage Award. There are awards for actors, there are awards for directors, there are awards for teachers, but the Burbage Award goes to someone who has had to worry not just about the show but about the sales and the donors and the bills and the patrons. It goes to a person whose work in the theatre, like that of the Burbages, has significantly advanced the love of his Shakespeare's plays through all the perils and difficulties of creating and preserving a company and a theatre.
