Shakespeare Festival names theater for Paul Allen
The Mail Tribune reported that the Elizabethan Stage/Allen Pavilion will henceforth be the Allen Elizabethan Theatre.
The latest gift from the Allen Family Foundation is for $3 million. That brings the total over the years to $11 million. The money has been used to build a small in-the-round theater, to put an enclosing pavilion around the Elizabethan stage and to finance a cycle of plays about American history.
Allen also loaned the festival a copy of the First Folio edition of Shakespeare's collected plays.
