Classic Stage Company will hold the official unveiling of the Lynn F. Angelson Theater, named for its most devoted supporter and long-standing board chair, and the John Doyle Artistic Director's Circle donor doors on Wednesday, January 23 at 5:30pm.

The installation was designed by Tony Award winner David Rockwell, and the ceremony will take place prior to the evening's performance of Conor McPherson's new version of August Strindberg's The Dance of Death, directed by Tony winner Victoria Clark. The Dance of Death is running in repertory with Yaël Farber's Mies Julie, directed by Shariffa Ali. Lynn F. Angelson, John Doyle, and special guest John Turturro will be on hand for the celebration on January 23.

Angelson's association with CSC began in early 2000, when she worked as an intern at CSC in connection with her arts management studies at NYU. She joined the CSC board in 2001. She has consistently drawn from her own resources, from the board, and from many others, and has enabled the extraordinary artists making work on 13th Street to rise to ever-greater heights.

As part of the CSC's 50th birthday celebrations, and as a gift to the theater, David Rockwell and the Rockwell Group designed a set of donor doors leading into the newly renamed Lynn. F. Angelson Theater utilizing raw, honest materials in keeping with CSC's modern, minimalist approach.
