Dear Moose Hall, I love attending your performances which hasve gotten more creative and interesting in their interpretations and presentation every year. Your setting is beautiful. You offer Shakespeare and more, and an annual children’s concert. And you are the ONLY Shakespeare in North Manhattan, and in a setting many people use and know about. I lo ve it that you serve the community in Spanish and that you perform plays like The Golem and Heart of Light Mind of Darkness, which was performed partially in Spanish. This year you had a bigger crowd than ever at last Friday’s performance of the Tempest! I hope that you are able to continue to use Inwood Hill Park and that you find the funding you need for many more successful seasons. What you do for our community is irreplaceable.
“I would like to register my support of our local Shakespeare-in-the-Park!”
“I wholeheartedly extend my support for the Shakespeare in the park productions!. We need this program.”
“I have attended many great performances at that spot over the years! We need more. . . . not less cultural events!”
“I also have attended many of the performances and feel that this company is a wonderful asset to the community.”
“I have attended every year and look forward to each new season! It is a special gem in our neighborhood deserving of support!”
“This is a great asset to the local community. We have been attending for years and now bring the kids. Loved the children’s chamber music last week.”
“My vote is for accessible theatre in Inwood!”
“We can’t lose this great asset.”
“We…support this festival wholeheartedly. It would ba a real shame for the community to lose this cultural offering.”
“Cultural events are for everybody and we need them in upper Manhattan!”
“more! More! Encore!!”
“The Festival is well run and provides a great alternative to the “pay or wait to get in free” production in that larger park downtown.”
