The Shakespeare Guild Salutes the Drama Book Shop at the Players Club

The Shakespeare Guild: SALUTING A UNIQUE INSTITUTION

Founded in 1917 by the Drama League, the Drama Book Shop became an independent store in 1923. Since 2001 it has been located on West 40th Street, where it provides a variety of services to the actors, directors, producers, and other theater professionals who work both on and off Broadway. Many of its employees are themselves performers or students who are preparing for careers in the arts, and a number of them take part in events at the Shop’s small black-box auditorium. In 2011 the store was recognized by a Tony Award for Excellence in the Theatre. Not surprisingly, its beneficiaries have responded with alarm to reports that increasing rents may soon force the Shop to relocate. The Guild shares that concern and is joining The Players for an evening whose purpose will be to rally support for a venerable institution and encourage its admirers to ensure that it continues to serve an indispensable constituency
