Elizabeth McGovern Honored

The theme of this year’s Oct. 6 Harman Center for the Arts Annual Gala was “Everything British” and
indeed it was from Noel Coward’s finest to a rousing finale by a Beatles tribute band. Artistic Director
Michael Kahn remarked, “Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could all rewrite our lives as musical comedy?”
Multi-talented actress Elizabeth McGovern, best known for her work in Downtown Abbey, was
presented with the William Shakespeare Award for Classical Theatre. Following the program guests
proceeded to an English-inspired repast catered by Occasions at the National Building Museum.
