Photos from the annual Shakespeare on the Sound spring gala
To dance or not to dance? That was the dilemma for guests at the annual Shakespeare on the Sound Spring Gala, although with a live band like Greenwich-based The Short Bus in the house, guests weren’t in a quandary for very long. About 200 supporters of the summer theater company hit the dance floor at the Dolce in Norwalk, kicking up their stilettos in support of the nonprofit’s 2014 production, The Two Gentlemen of Verona. Before striking moves to the sounds of the award-winning cover band, guests enjoyed cocktails, dinner and auctions. Leslie Lawrence of Rowayton chaired the event. Helping her to host the gala was Steven Yuhasz, executive director of Shakespeare on the Sound, and Emily Bryan, the organization’s director of education. Two Gentlemen of Verona—a comedy about young lovers, friends, infidelity and whiplash impulses—will be produced in Rowayton’s waterfront Pinkney Park from June 12 through June 29.
