The (New) Globe Gets (Even) More Help From Famous Friends

banner The (New) Globe Gets (Even) More Help From Famous Friends
From The Lord Norman Foster

The supporters of The New Globe Theater–the proposed Castle Williams arts center on Governors Island–already have lots of famous friends. (Moby! Pacino! Amy Sacco! Philip Seymour Hoffman! Moby!!).

But nothing helps like bedding secretive right-wing billionaire Bruce Kovner. The Lincoln Center vice-chairman has joined the board, where he’ll rub elbows with the aforementioned celebs while ogling Lord Norman Foster’s pretty plans.

And there’s more: Lord Ralph Voldemort Fiennes has not only “shared his enthusiasm and insights into theater design over coffee” with the New Globe folks, but has added his name to their list of supporters.
