Please join us for a festive salute to one of the most versatile artists of our time, a man whose portrayal of Antonio Salieri in Amadeus earned him an Academy Award for Best Actor in the 1984 film adaptation of Peter Shaffer's celebrated drama.

Mr. Abraham has appeared in dozens of movies, among them Finding Forrester, Mighty Aphrodite, The Name of the Rose, and Scarface. His stage work includes an acclaimed Broadway revival of Waiting for Godot, directed by Mike Nichols, and a Merchant of Venice that took his riveting Shylock to Stratford-upon-Avon as the culminating attraction in the Royal Shakespeare Company's epic Complete Works festival. He has performed twice at the White House, and his many Shakespearean credits are notable for star turns in classics like King Lear, Macbeth, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Much Ado About Nothing, Othello, Richard II, Richard III, and Twelfth Night.
