Cultural Leadership Breakfasts to Return Nov. 18, Dec. 16 

The Georgetowner’s monthly Cultural Leadership Breakfast Series — which presented insider talks by 38 leaders of D.C.-area museums, theaters, performing arts venues, dance companies and other arts organizations before going on hiatus late in 2019 — will return this fall at a new location, the Tabard Inn, 1739 N St. NW.  

On Thursday, Nov. 18, from 8 to 9:30 a.m., the featured speaker will be Shakespeare Theatre Company Artistic Director Simon Godwin. Previously artistic director at the Bristol Old Vic, London’s Royal Court Theatre and the Royal National Theatre — while also directing plays for the Royal Shakespeare Company — Godwin joined D.C.’s Shakespeare Theatre Company, succeeding Michael Kahn, in 2019. At the breakfast, he’ll talk about the virtual programming STC launched during the pandemic and the thinking behind the 2021-22 season now underway. 

On Thursday, Dec. 16, from 8 to 9:30 a.m., the featured speaker will be new National Building Museum President and Executive Director Aileen Fuchs. Fuchs became the museum’s fifth director last May after four years as president and CEO of the 83-acre Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden, a National Register Historic District in the New York City borough of Staten Island. Earlier, she held positions with the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation and American History Workshop. She will talk about the NBM’s current and future projects. 

The Georgetowner wishes to thank the sponsors of this series: Balfour Senior Living, Bonhams and Long & Foster.
