Best Promotion of the Bard

Nashville Shakespeare Festival

NSF deserves recognition for keeping its stock in trade—the Bard—in the public consciousness. The community-centered "Shakespeare Allowed," which continues to present at the public library, offered average citizens the chance to perform Shakespeare's great works in a supportive setting. Plus the company mounted an unlikely yet totally inventive version of Richard the Third, put the Bard on trial (about time!) in the original Shakespeare's Case, then finished the theater season with a flourish with two well-received productions at Shakespeare in the Park. In a stressed-out economic climate, that's an admirable effort. MARTIN BRADY
