Shakespeare and federal contracting
Perhaps yon immixGroup has a lean and hungry look?
Lean & Hungry Theater, which appears to be the only radio drama company in Washington D.C., has received a $10,000 donation from immixGroup. The contribution makes the federal contracting company the first corporate sponsor of the group, which has performed adaptations of several Shakespeare plays broadcast on the Washington-area public radio station WAMU.
Alex Zavistovich and Jessica Hansen co-founded the theater troupe in 2006. Its name is derived from a line in Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar."
The donation makes immixGroup a Silver Level sponsor of the theater’s educational mission of bringing the classics of literature to underserved communities.
“This is a tremendous vote of confidence for Lean & Hungry Theater from the Washington, DC area business community,” said Zavistovich, Lean & Hungry’s managing director. “Our operations have been largely bootstrapped since we began. The backing of a company the caliber of immixGroup proves that our work has genuine value to a broad audience demographic, and our mission has the support of organizations that believe in giving back to the community.”
The next production of Lean & Hungry Theater is “Hamlet,” to be broadcast live on WAMU-88.5, at 6 p.m. October 30.
