Used to taking center stage in the PR world, longtime lead Richard Edelman turns his attention to a new role this weekend, hosting a Shakespearian fundraising evening at his home in the Hamptons.
The event, due to take place this Sunday, features a performance of Shakespeare's All's Well That Ends Well by The Public Theater, directed by Barry Edelstein, as well as cocktails and dinner.
Celebrity hosts such as Jesse L. Martin and Roz and Richard Edelman have put on the event to benefit The Public Theater's Shakespeare Initiative. The organization's educational outreach programs and free and low-cost ticketing bring Shakespeare to underserved communities in New York City.
In the opening scene of the play, male protagonist Bertram is warned to Love all, trust a few and do wrong to none, advice that ardent fundraiser Edelman will no doubt sympathize with in his day job. Could it be the PR guru is warming up to take on the lead role himself this weekend?
