“Shakespeare” is leaving Stratford.

Actually  the  famous  theatre festival is taking the word “Shakespeare” out of its official name.

It will now be known as ” The Stratford Festival,” the same name it had until 2008, when the Bard’s name was inserted.

There’s also a new logo for the  renowned repertory theatre festival.

The changes were  announced as Antoni Cimolinoc officially took over as artistic director from Des McAnuff.

Cimolino says  in a statement,  ”  ‘Stratford Festival ‘ is the name that we have used for most of our 60 years, it is simple and direct, it resonates with people and it carries our legacy of quality and success.”
