Attachment to Form 1023 LANSBURGH THEATER, INC. 450 Seventh Street, N.W. Washington, DC 20004 EIN: 06-1343527 Part II. - Activities and Operational Information

1.

Narrative Description of Activities Lansburgh Theater, Inc. (the "Organization"), for which

this Application is submitted is a charitable corporation which has been organized under the District of Columbia Nonprofit Corporation Act. The initial Board of Directors consists of Graham Gund, Michael M. Davis and Jessica T. Andrews, a representative of The Shakespeare Theatre at the Folger Libr which is a public charity (together with any successor therel the "Shakespeare Theatre"). The organization has been forme further the charitable purposes of the Shakespeare Theatre. Shakespeare Theatre's activities consist of promoting and fostering the dramatic arts, principally through the staging theatrical productions, which is clearly an exempt purpose. e.g., Rev. Rul. 64-175, 1964-1 (Part I) C.B. 185. At all times, at least one member of the Board of Directors of the Organization will be appointed by the Shakespeare Theatre. The Organization is intended to qualify under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code as a charitable organization, and under S509(a)(3) of the Code as a support organization which is not a private foundation. The Organization's activities consist of owning a 450 seat Theater located on E Street between 7th and 8th Streets, N.W., in

-2Washington, D.C., and making this theater, and related supportive facilities and services, available to the Shakespeare Theatre for a charge which is substantially less than the rate which the Shakespeare Theatre would be obliged to pay to a for-profit commercial landlord. The Shakespeare Theatre is entitled to use and occupy the Organization's theater facility under a lease arrangement which became effective in February of 1992 and which calls for base rent of $1 per year, with a certain amount of supplemental rent being payable (i) out of bookings income, if any, realized by the Shakespeare Theatre from subleases, booking,
.

or event rentals of the theater, and (ii) if the number of seats sold by the Shakespeare Theatre,-or the amount of concessions income realized by the Shakespeare Theatre, exceeds certain thresholds. See Question 9b. It is not clear whether any reimbursements will ever be received by the Organization under the supplemental rent provisions of the lease, and even if any such amounts were received,-they would not be sufficient to offset fully the Organization's costs in connection with owning and operating the theater. The lease also requires that the Organization contribute $70,000 per year to a capital reserve fund to fund capital expenditures to be made with respect to the theater property over the term of the lease. Under the lease arrangement, the Organization does not expect ever to realize a net profit from its operation of the theater. An activity which is not inherently charitable may still be charitable if it furthers a charitable purpose. See Rev. Ril. 674, 1967-1 C.B.
121

(publication of scientific journal qualified as

-3charitable due to the manner in which the activity was conducted). The same is true of the rental of property, as long as the rental activity is conducted in a manner which supports a charitable purpose. See Rev. Rul 69-572, 1969-2 C.B. 119, in which the rental of office space to exempt organizations on a subsidized basis was held to be a charitable activity. In that ruling, as in this case, there was a close connection between the supporting organization and the exempt organizations, the rental rates charged were substantially below their fair rental value, and the supporting organization did not operate with the intention of making a net profit on the rental activity. Accordingly, the ruling holds that the organization there involved was dedicated to carrying out the charitable endeavors of the exempt organizations it supported. For the same reasons, the Organization which is the subject of this application is dedicated to carrying out the charitable endeavors of the Shakespeare Theatre, and therefore its activities further a charitable purpose.

2.

Sources of Financial Support. The sources of financial support are expected to consist

of (i) gifts, grants and contributions (including the initial grant in kind of the theater facility), and (ii) partial reimbursements from. the Shakespeare Theatre under the lease.

-43. Fund-Raising Program. No formal fund-raising program is, at present, planned. It is expected that the Directors will make informal direct contact with prospects that they believe may be interested in supporting the work of the Organization. No brochures or other formal written solicitations of support have been prepared.

4d. Disqualified Persons. Graham Gund is a disqualified person with respect to the Organization, by virtue of being a partner in a partnership which is a "substantial contributor" to the Organization.

5.

Control by Other Organizations.

The Organization has a special relationship with The Shakespeare Theatre at the Folger Library, a public charity (the "Shakespeare Theatre"), which occupies and uses the theater premises for the purpose of staging theatrical productions. The special relationship between the two organizations exists because the Organization is a supporting organization with respect to the Shakespeare Theatre, and at all times at least one member of the

Board of Directors of the Organization must be a person appointed by the officers, directors, trustees or membership of the Shakespeare Theatre (or any successor supported organization).

8.

Exempt Purpose Assets.

The Organization owns real property consisting of a 450 seat theater comprising Unit 3 at the Lansburgh Complex Condominium, located on E Street between 7th and 8th Streets, N.W., Washington, D.C.

9b.

Leases.

The Organization has entered into a lease of the theater property it owns with The Shakespeare Theatre at the Folger Library, a public charity (the "Shakespeare Theatre"), which occupies and uses the theater premises for the purpose of staging theatrical productions. A copy of the lease is attached to this application. The Organization is a supporting organization with respect to the Shakespeare Theatre, and at all times at least one member of the Board of Directors of the Organization must be a person appointed by the officers, directors, trustees or membership of the Shakespeare Theatre (or any successor supported organization).

supported organization (the Shakespeare Theatre) within the meaning of Reg. 1.509(a)-4(f)(2)(iii) and 1.509(a)-4(i), and meets the "integral part test" and the "responsiveness test". Accordingly, it is not necessary for there to be common

-7supervision or control, other than as required by the integral part test and the responsiveness test. Article EIGHTH of the Organization's Articles of Incorporation provides that at all times a representative of the supported organization will be on the Organization's board of directors.

5.

As a result, the Shakespeare Theatre has a significant voice in the policy formation and decision making processes of the Organization.

To the extent that the Organization realizes income as a result of its activities in excess of that necessary to pay operating expenses of the theater, it is expected that 100 percent of that income will be spent for the benefit of the Shakespeare Theatre, either through direct grants or through expenditures which improve, maintain, or otherwise directly benefit the theater property which the Shakespeare Theatre occupies on a subsidized basis.

-87b. Total Annual Income of Supported Organization. The Shakespeare Theatre's annual income from all sources, including gifts and grants, is approximately $5,500,000.

7c. Annual Contribution to Supported Organization. As stated above in response to Question 7a, the Organization expects to expend 100 percent of its net income, if any, to or for the benefit of the Shakespeare Theatre. In addition, as set forth above, the Organization provides premises which are integral to the exempt purposes of the supported organization on a subsidized basis. The measure of the subsidy is not easy to quantify, but it is estimated to be substantial.

Thus, the Organization, by making theater space available to the Shakespeare Theatre on a subsidized basis, maintains a significant involvement

150597750; 4 )

(i) Commercial general liability insurance (in the broadest form available, including without limitation broad form contractual liability, fire, legal liability, independent contractor's hazard, products and completed operations, liquor liability, and bailee's liability coverages) under which Tenant is named as an insured and Landlord and Landlord's management agent (and such others as are in privity of estate with Landlord, as set out in a notice from time to time) and the Association are named as additional insureds as their interests may appear, in an amount which shall, at the beginning of the term, be at least equal to $5,000,000, and, which, from time to time during the term, shall be for such higher limits, if any, as are requested by Landlord and are customarily carried in the Washington, D.C. area at properties similar to the Leased Premises and used for the purposes permitted hereunder; (ii) "Special Form" property insurance on a full "replacement cost" basis, with agreed amount endorsement, covering all Tenant's furniture, furnishings, fixtures and equipment and other personal property and all improvements and betterments to the Leased Premises performed at Tenant's expense, and the Landlord-purchased personalty (which insurance as to the Landlord-purchased personalty and any betterments and improvements shall list Landlord as loss payee); (iii) Worker's compensation insurance with statutory limits covering all of Tenant's employees working on the Leased Premises and employer's liability insurance with limits of not less than $500,000/$500,000/$500,000; (iv) Automotive liability insurance covering all owned, hired and non-owned motor vehicles used in connection with Tenant's operations at the Leased Premises under which Tenant is named as an insured and Landlord is named additional insureds as their interests may appear, with limits not less than that required pursuant to clause (i) above for Tenant's commercial general insurance liability. (v) Business interruption insurance covering Theater's operations at the Leased Premises under which Theater is named as an insured and Landlord is named additional insured as their interests may appear, with a limit not less than $1,000,000. All such policies shall contain a clause that such policy and the coverage evidenced thereby shall be primary with respect to any insurance policies carried by Landlord and shall be obtained from responsible companies qualified to do business and in good standing in the District of Columbia, Tenant agrees to furnish Landlord with certificates evidencing all such insurance prior to the beginning of the term hereof. Tenant shall procure and pay for renewals of such insurance from time to time before the expiration thereof, and Tenant shall deliver to Landlord and any additional insured such renewal policy or a certificate thereof at least thirty (30) days prior to expiration of any existing policy. Bach such policy shall be non-cancelable and not materially changed with respect to the interest of Landlord (and others that are in privity of estate with Landlord of which Landlord provides notice to Tenant from time to time) without at least ten (10) days' prior written notice thereto. Any insurance required of Tenant under this Lease may be furnished by Tenant under a blanket policy carried by it provided that such blanket policy shall reference the Leased Premises equal to the insurance amounts required in the Lease. -121B0597750;4)

Landlord and Tenant shall each endeavor to secure an appropriate clause in, or an endorsement upon, each property damage insurance policy obtained by it and covering the Leased Premises or the personal property, fixtures and equipment located therein or thereon, pursuant to which the respective insurance companies waive subrogation or permit the insured, prior to any loss, to agree with a third party to waive any claim it might have against said third party. The waiver of subrogation or permission for waiver of any claim hereinbefore referred to shall extend to the agents of each party and its employees and, in the case of Tenant, shall also extend to all other persons and entities occupying or using the Leased Premises by, through or under Tenant. If and to the extent that such waiver or permission can be obtained only upon payment of an additional charge then the party benefiting from the waiver or permission shall pay such charge upon demand, or shall be deemed to have agreed that the party obtaining the insurance coverage in question shall be free of any further obligations under the provisions hereof relating to such waiver or permission from such insurance companies. Subject to the foregoing provisions of this Section and insofar as may be permitted by the terms of the insurance policies carried by it, each party hereby releases the other with respect to any claim which it might otherwise have against the other party for loss, damage or destruction to the extent such damage is or would be covered by policies of insurance carried or required to be carried by the respective party hereunder. Both parties agree to exhaust any and all claims against its insurer(s) prior to commencing an action against the other for any property loss as to which the foregoing waiver may be unenforceable. Cross-Indemnification. Tenant shall, at all times during the term and for such (b) further time as Tenant (or any entity claiming by, through or under Tenant) occupies the Leased Premises or any part thereof, save Landlord harmless, and exonerate and indemnify Landlord, from and against any and all claims, liabilities or penalties asserted by or on behalf of any person, firm, corporation or public authority on account.of injury, death, damage or loss to person or property in or upon the Leased Premises and/or the Property arising out of the use or occupancy of the Leased Premises by Tenant or by any person claiming by, through or under Tenant (including, without limitation, all patrons, guests and employees), or arising out of any delivery to or service supplied to or activity or performance conducted at the Leased Premises, or on account of or based upon anything whatsoever done on or occurring in the Leased Premises or property adjacent to the Leased Premises, except (and then only to the extent not subject to the provisions of the final paragraph of Section 10(a)) if the same were caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord, its agents, servants or employees. In respect of all of the foregoing, Tenant shall indemnify Landlord (and such others as are in privity of estate with Landlord) from and against all costs, expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees), and liabilities incurred in or in connection with any such claim, action or proceeding brought thereon: and, in case of any action or proceeding brought against Landlord by mason of any such claim, Tenant, upon notice from Landlord and at Tenant's expense, shall resist or defend such action or proceeding and employ counsel therefor reasonably satisfactory to Landlord. Landlord shall save Tenant harmless, and exonerate and indemnify Tenant from and against any and all claims, liabilities or penalties asserted by or on behalf of any person, firm, corporation or public authority on account of injury, death, damage or loss to persons or property -13(80597750; 41

arising out of Landlord's negligence, subject however to the provisions of the final paragraph of Section 10(a). In respect of all of the foregoing, but as so limited, Landlord shall indemnify Tenant from and against all costs, expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) and all liabilities incurred in or in connection with any such claim, action or proceeding brought thereon; and, in case of any action or proceeding brought against Tenant by reason of any such claim, Landlord, upon notice from Tenant and at Landlord's expense, shall resist or defend such action or proceeding and employ counsel therefor reasonably satisfactory to Tenant. SECTION 11-. DAMAGETO OR DESTRUCTIONOF THE LEASED PREMISES;

CONDEMNATION (a) Termination.If all or any material part of the Leased Premises, the Building or the Property is damaged or destroyed by fire or other casualty or is lawfully condemned or taken in any manner for public or quasi-public use, this Lease may be terminated by Landlord at Landlord's election. Such election, which may be made notwithstanding the fact that Landlord's entire interest may have been divested, may be made by the giving of notice thereof to Tenant within sixty (60) days after the date of such damage, destruction, taking or condemnation. If such damage, destruction, taking or condemnation is such as to prevent the operation of Tenant's business in the Leased Premises for more than five (5) months during any Season, Tenant may elect to terminate this Lease upon thirty (30) days prior written notice to Landlord within sixty (60) days after the expiration of such five month period, and upon the expiration of such thirty day period this Lease shall terminate, unless within such thirty day period the Leased Premises are restored sufficiently to allow for the operation of Tenant's business at the Leased Premises, whereupon Tenant's election to terminate shall be nullified. In connection with Tenant's decision whether to elect to exercise any termination right, upon request, Landlord shall advise Tenant of the date on which Landlord anticipates such restoration, if commenced, will be substantially completed. (b) Repair of Damage or Destruction.If this Lease is not terminated pursuant to Section 11 (a) above, Landlord shall repair and rebuild the Leased Premises with reasonable diligence to the extent permitted by the net proceeds of insurance recovered or damages awarded for such taking, destruction or damage and subject to zoning and building laws or ordinances then in existence, and this Lease shall continue in full force and effect. As used in this Section 11(b) and in Section 11(c), below, "net proceeds of insurance recovered or damages awarded" shall mean the gross amount of such insurance or damages Less Landlord's reasonable expenses incurred in connection with the collection of the same, including, without limitation, fees and expenses for legal and appraisal services. (c) Partial Taking of Leased Premises.If any damage or destruction by fire or other casualty, or any taking or condemnation occurs to the Leased Premises other than one described in Section 11(a), above, Landlordshall use reasonable diligence to repair and restore the Leased Premises to an architectural unit as nearly like its condition prior to such damage, destruction, taking or condemnation as shall be practicable and to the extent permitted by the net proceeds of insurance recovered or damages awarded and subject to zoning and building laws or ordinances then in existence, and this Lease shall continue in full force and effect.

-141130597750; 4)

(d) Abatement of Rent. If any damage or destruction to or taking or condemnation of the Leased Premises occurs, a just proportion of the Additional Rent due on account of condominium charges ("Condominium Charges Rent"), according to the nature and extent of the damages sustained by the Leased Premises, shall be suspended or abated until the Leased Premises (excluding any improvements to the Leased Premises made at Tenant's expense), or what may remain thereof, shall be put by Landlord in condition for use to the extent provided in this Section 11. If any damage or destruction shall preclude Tenant from using the Leased Premises for the uses permitted under this Lease, the foregoing abatement of Condominium Charges Rent shall be a total abatement. Effect of Termination: If this Lease is terminated pursuant to Section 11(a), this (e) Lease and the term and estate hereby granted shall expire as of the date of termination in the same manner and with the same effect as if that were the date set forth in Section 3 for the expiration of the term of this Lease, and the rent and all Additional Rent and other charges due and payable under this Lease shall be apportioned as of such date. Condemnation Damages. All damages from any taking or condemnation of the (f) Leased Premises shall belong to Landlord and Tenant hereby grants to Landlord all of Tenant's rights to such damages and covenants to deliver such further assignments thereof as Landlord may from time to time request. Nothing contained herein shall be construed to prevent Tenant from prosecuting in any condemnation proceedings a claim for the value of any of Tenant's personal property and business machines and equipment installed in the Leased Premises by Tenant and at Tenant's sole expense, and for relocation expenses, provided such action shall not affect the amount of compensation otherwise recoverable by Landlord from the taking authority. SECTION 12. SUBLEASES AND ASSIGNMENTS Tenant shall not assign, mortgage, pledge, hypothecate, encumber or otherwise transfer this Lease or sublease (which term shall be deemed to include the granting of concessions and licenses and the like) all or any part of the Leased Premises or suffer or permit this Lease or the leasehold estate hereby created or any other rights arising under this Lease to be assigned, transferred, mortgaged, pledged, hypothecated or encumbered, in whole or in part, whether voluntarily, involuntarily or by operation of law, or permit the use or occupancy of the Leased Premises by anyone other than Tenant, except as hereinafter provided. For purposes of this Section, an assignment of this Lease shall be deemed to include any conversion of Tenant to a for-profit entity or to any entity which is a non tax-exempt entity under Chapter 10 of Article 47 of the District of Columbia Code. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall have the right, subject to compliance with the terms of this Lease (including, without limitation, its obligations pursuant to Section 6(a)), to sublease, license or otherwise permit (except via assignment) the Leased Premises or any part thereof to be used for purposes permitted by this Lease by parties other than Tenant; and to establish rents or other booking, sublease or license fees and charges in connection with such subleases, licenses, booking arrangements or other agreements allowing occupancy of the Leased Premises.

-15(BOS97750; 41

No subletting or assignment shall in any way impair the continuing primary liability of Tenant hereunder. No assignment, subletting or occupancy shall affect the uses permitted pursuant to Section 6. Any sublease, license or other agreement relating to the occupancy or use of all or any portion of the Leased Premises shall provide that it is subject and subordinate to this Lease and to the matters to which this Lease is or shall be subject or subordinate, but that in the event of termination of this Lease or reentry or dispossession of Tenant by Landlord under this Lease, Landlord may, at its option, take over all of the right, title and interest of Tenant, and such subtenant, licensee or other entity shall, at Landlord's option, attorn to Landlord pursuant to the then executory provisions of such agreement. SECTION 13. DEFAULTS (a) Tenant Default.If (i) Tenant shall default in the performance of any of its obligations to pay the Base Rent or any Additional Rent or other charges due under this Lease, and such default shall continue for five (5) days after written notice from Landlord designating such default, or if within thirty (30) days after written notice from Landlord to Tenant specifying any other default or defaults Tenant has not commenced diligently to correct the default or defaults so specified or has not thereafter diligently pursued such correction to completion, or (ii) any assignment shall be made by Tenant for the benefit of creditors, or (iii) Tenant's leasehold interest shall be taken on execution, or (iv) a lien or other involuntary encumbrance is filed against Tenant's leasehold interest or Tenant's other property, including said leasehold interest, and is not discharged within thirty (30) days thereafter, or (v) a petition is filed by Tenant for liquidation within sixty (60) days thereafter, or (vi) an occurrence of the kind set-forth in clauses (i), (iv) or (v), above, shall occur and if either (x) Tenant shall cure such default within the applicable grace period or (y) Landlord shall, in its sole discretion, permit Tenant to cure such default after the applicable grace period has expired, and an event which would constitute a similar default if not cured within the applicable grace period shall occur more than three times within the next 365 days, whether or not such event is cured within the applicable grace period, then, and in any of such cases indicated in clauses (i) through (vi) hereof (collectively and individually, a "Default of Tenant"), Landlord and the agents and servants of Landlord lawfully may, in addition to and not in derogation of any remedies for any preceding breach of covenant, immediately or at any time thereafter terminate this Lease by notice to Tenant, specifying a date on which this Lease shall terminate and this Lease shall come to an end on the date specified therein as fully and completely as if such date were the date herein originally fixed for the expiration of the term (Tenant hereby waiving, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any rights of redemption), and Tenant shall then quit and surrender the Leased PreMises to Landlord, but Tenant shall remain liable as hereinafter provided. If this Lease shall have been terminated as provided in this Section 13(a), or if any execution or attachment shall be issued against Tenant or any of Tenant's property whereupon the Leased Premises shall be taken or occupied by someone other than Tenant, then Landlord may, without notice, re-enter the Leased Premises, either by force, summary proceedings, ejectment or otherwise, and remove and dispossess Tenant and all other persons and any and all

-16(B0597750;4)

property from the same, as if this Lease has not been made, and Tenant hereby waives the service of notice of intention to re-enter or to institute legal proceedings to that end. In the event of any termination pursuant to this Section 13(a), Tenant shall pay the Base Rent and any Additional Rent or other charges payable hereunder up to the time of such termination, and thereafter Tenant, until the end of what would have been the end of the term, absent such termination, and whether or not the Leased Premises shall have been re-let, shall be liable to Landlord for, and shall pay to Landlord, as current damages, the Base Rent and any Additional Rent or other charges which would be payable hereunder for the remainder of the term of this Lease if such termination had not occurred (assuming that, for the purposes of this paragraph, annual payments by Tenant on account of Additional Rent or other charges would be the same as payments required for the prior full Season or, if less than a full Season shall have occurred since the Commencement Date, the payment required for such lesser period projected to an annual amount), less the net proceeds, if any, of any re-letting of the Leased Premises, after deducting all expenses in connection with such re-letting, including, without limitation, all repossession costs, brokerage commissions, legal expenses, attorneys' fees, advertising, expenses of employees, alteration costs and expenses of preparation for such re-letting. Tenant shall pay such current damages to Landlord annually on the date on which such payment would have been payable hereunder if this Lease had not been terminated. In case of any Default of Tenant, re-entry, expiration and dispossession by summary proceedings or otherwise, Landlord may (i) re-let the Leased Premises or any part or parts thereof, either in the name of Landlord or otherwise, for a term or terms which may, at Landlord's option, be equal to or less than or exceed the period which would otherwise have constituted the balance of the term hereunder, may grant concessions or free rent to the extent that Landlord considers advisable and necessary to re-let the same and (ii) may make such reasonable alterations, repairs and decorations in the Leased Premises as Landlord, in Landlord's sole judgment, deems advisable and necessary for the purpose of re-letting the Leased Premises; and the making of such alterations, repairs and decorations shall not operate or be construed to release Tenant from liability hereunder as aforesaid. Landlord shall in no event be liable in any way whatsoever for failure to re-let the Leased Premises, or, in the event that the Leased Premises are re-let, for failure to collect the rent under such re-letting. To the fullest extent permitted by law, Tenant hereby expressly waives any and all rights of redemption or restoration of the operation of this Lease granted under any present or future laws in the event of Tenant being evicted or dispossessed, or in the event of Landlord obtaining possession of the Leased Premises, by reason of the violation by Tenant of any of the covenants and conditions of this Lease. Any and all rights and remedies which Landlord may have under this Lease and at law and in equity shall be cumulative and shall not be deemed inconsistent with each other, and any two or more of all such rights and remedies may be exercised at the same time insofar as permitted by law. At any time with or without notice, Landlord shall have the right, but shall not be required, to pay such sums or do any act which requires the expenditure of monies which may be necessary or appropriate by reason of the failure or neglect of Tenant to comply with any of its obligations under this Lease (whether or not the'same shall constitute a Default of Tenant), and -17P0547750:4)

in the event of the exercise of such right by Landlord, Tenant shall pay to Landlord forthwith upon demand, as Additional Rent, all such sums including reasonable attorneys' fees, together with interest thereon at the Default Rate. (b) Landlord's Default.Landlord shall not be deemed to be in default in the performance of any of its obligations hereunder unless it shall fail to perform such obligations and such failure shall continue for a period of thirty (30) days or such additional time as is reasonably required to correct any such default after written notice has been given by Tenant to Landlord specifying the nature of Landlord's alleged default. Tenant shalt have no right to terminate this Lease for any default by Landlord hereunder and no right, for any such default, to offset or counterclaim against any rent due hereunder. In no event shall Landlord ever be liable to Tenant for any loss of business or any other indirect, special or consequential damages suffered by Tenant from whatever cause, Tenant further agrees that if Landlord shall have failed to cure any such default within thirty (30) days of such notice to Landlord (or if such default cannot be cured within said time, then within such additional time as may be necessary if within said thirty (30) days Landlord has commenced and is diligently pursuing the remedies necessary to cure such default), then the holder(s) of any mortgage(s) or the trustee(s) or beneficiaries of any deed of trust or the lessor under any ground lease entitled to notice pursuant to Section 17(g) shall have an additional thirty (30) days within which to cure such default or if such default cannot be cured within that time, then such additional time as may be necessary if within such thirty (30) days any such holder, trustee, beneficiary or lessor has commenced and is diligently pursuing the remedies necessary to cure such default (including but not limited to commencement of foreclosure proceedings, if necessary to effect such cure), in which event this Lease shall not be terminated while such remedies are being so diligently pursued. If Landlord shall in good faith dispute the occurrence of an Landlord Default and Landlord, before the expiration of the applicable cure period, shall give to Tenant written notice specifying the basis for its dispute, the existence of an Landlord Default shall be deemed not to have occurred and Landlord shall have no obligation with respect thereto until the dispute is determined adversely to Landlord and Landlord shall fail to pay the invoice for the cure thereof within ten (10) days after Landlord is notified of the adverse determination or to cure such Landlord Default. Tenant and Landlord shall negotiate in good faith to resolve the dispute within five (5) days of Landlord's notice of its dispute as to the existence of an Landlord Default, failing which either may proceed to arbitration in Washington D.C., which arbitration shall be before a regionally or nationally recognized alternative dispute resolution forum such as Endispute or ADR or other similar entity under the auspices of the District of Columbia Bar Association. The decision of the mediator shall be final, conclusive and binding upon the parties. SECTION 14. SUBORDINATION This Lease, and all rights of Tenant hereunder, are and shall be subject and subordinate to any ground or master lease, and all renewals, extensions, modifications and replacements thereof, and to all mortgages and deeds of trust which may now or hereafter affect the Leased Premises and/or any of such leases, whether or not such mortgages or deeds of trust shall also cover other lands and/or buildings and/or leases, to each and every advance made or hereafter to be made under such mortgages and deeds of trust, and to all renewals, modifications, replacements and extensions of such leases and such mortgages and deeds of trust and all -18(B0597751% 41

consolidations of such mortgages and deeds of trust, provided that, with respect to any such lease or mortgage, Landlord shall deliver to Tenant an agreement by such lessor or holder, in the form of such lessor or holder, to the effect that, subject to limitations of the type set forth in clauses (a) through (g) in the following paragraph, all of Tenant's rights under this Lease (including, without limitation, Tenant's right to possession of the Premises) shall not be disturbed by such lessor or holder so long as there shall exist no Default of Tenant. This Section shall be self-operative and no further instrument of subordination shall be required. In confirmation of such subordination, Tenant shall promptly execute, acknowledge and deliver any instrument that Landlord, the lessor under any such lease or the holder of any such mortgage or trustee or beneficiary of any deed of trust or any of their respective successors in interest may reasonably request to evidence such subordination. Any lease to which this Lease is, at the time referred to, subject and subordinate is herein called "Superior Lease" and the lessor referred to, is herein called "Superior Lessor"; and any mortgage or deed of trust to which this Lease is, at the time referred to, subject and subordinate, is herein called "Superior Mortgage" and the holder, trustee or beneficiary of a Superior Mortgage is herein called "Superior Mortgagee". If any Superior Lessor or Superior Mortgagee or the nominee or designee of any Superior Lessor or Superior Mortgagee shall succeed to the rights of Landlord under this Lease, whether through possession or foreclosure action or delivery of a new lease or deed, or otherwise, then at the request of such party so succeeding to Landlord's rights (herein called "Successor Landlord") and upon such Successor Landlord's written agreement to accept Tenant's attomment, Tenant shall attorn to and recognize such Successor Landlord as Tenant's landlord under this Lease and shall promptly execute and deliver any instrument that such Successor Landlord may reasonably request to evidence such attomment. Upon such attomment, this Lease shall continue in full force and effect as a direct lease between the Successor Landlord and Tenant upon all of the terms, conditions and covenants as are set forth in this Lease, except that the Successor Landlord (unless formerly Landlord under this Lease or it nominee or designee) shall not be (a) liable in any way to Tenant for any act or omission, neglect or default on the part of Landlord under this Lease, (b) responsible for any monies owing by or on deposit with Landlord to the credit of Tenant, (c) subject to any counterclaim or setoff which theretofore accrued to Tenant against Landlord, (d) bound by any modification of this Lease subsequent to such Superior Lease or Superior Mortgage, or by any previous prepayment of Base Rent or Additional Rent for more than one (1) month, which was not approved in writing by the Superior Lessor or the Superior Mortgagee thereto, (e) liable to the Tenant beyond the Successor Landlord's interest in the Leased Premises and the rents, income, receipts, revenues, issues and profits issuing therefrom, (f) responsible for the performance of any work to be done by the Landlord under this Lease to render the Leased Premises ready for occupancy by the Tenant, or (g) required to remove any person occupying the Leased Premises or any part thereof, except if such person claims by, through or under the Successor Landlord. Tenant agrees at any time and from time to time to execute a suitable instrument in confirmation of Tenant's agreement to attom, as aforesaid. SECTION 15. RECORDING OF LEASE Tenant shall not record this Lease. The parties shall, upon the request of either party, promptly execute duplicate originals of an instrument, in recordable form, which shall constitute a memorandum of this Lease, setting forth a description of the Leases Premises, the term of this Lease and any other portions thereof, exceptingthe rental provisions, as either party may reasonably request. -191B0597750; 4)

SECTION 17. MISCELLANEOUS (a) No Partnership. Nothing contained in this Lease shall be deemed or construed to create a partnership or joint venture of or between Landlord and Tenant, or to create any other relationship between the parties hereto other than that of landlord and tenant. (b) Rights Cumulative. All rights, powers, and privileges conferred hereunder upon parties hereto shall be cumulative and not restrictive to those given by law. (c) Notices.

Any failure of any of the parties to comply with any obligation, representation, warranty, covenant, agreement, or condition of this Lease may be waived by the party entitled to the benefits thereof only by a written instrument signed by the party granting such waiver, but such waiver or failure to insist upon strict compliance with such obligation, representation, warranty, covenant, agreement, or condition shall not operate as a waiver of, or estoppel with respect to, any subsequent or other failure. Whenever this Lease requires or permits approval or consent by or on behalf of any party hereto, such approval or consent shall -20{ B 0597750; 4 )

be given in writing in a manner consistent with the requirements for a waiver of compliance as set forth in this Section 17(d). Entire Agreement; Partial Invalidity. This Lease and the Prior Lease contain the (e) entire agreement between the parties and shall not be modified in any manner except by an instrument in writing executed by the parties. If any term or provision of this Lease, or the application thereof, to any person or circumstances shall to any extent be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Lease, or the application of such term or provision to persons or circumstances other than those as to which it is held invalid or unenforceable shall not be affected thereby and each term and provision of this Lease shall be valid and be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law. Limitation of Landlord's Liability. With reference to any assignment by Landlord (f) of Landlord's interest in this Lease or the rents payable hereunder, conditional in nature or otherwise, which assignment is made to the holder of a mortgage or trustee or beneficiary of a deed of trust on property which includes the Leased Premises, Tenant agrees that the execution thereof by Landlord and the acceptance thereof by the holder of such mortgage or trustee or beneficiary of such deed of trust shall never be treated as an assumption by such holder or trustee or beneficiary of any of the obligations of Landlord hereunder unless such holder or trustee or beneficiary shall, by notice sent to Tenant, specifically otherwise elect and that, except as aforesaid, such holder or trustee or beneficiary shall be treated as having assumed landlord's obligations hereunder (subject to the limitations set forth in Section 14 hereof) only upon foreclosure of such holder's or trustee or beneficiary mortgage or deed of trust and the taking of possession of the Leased Premises. In no event shall the acquisition of Landlord's interest in the Leased Premises by a purchaser which, simultaneously therewith, leases Landlord's entire interest in the Leased Premises back to the seller thereof be treated as an assumption by operation of law or otherwise, of Landlord's obligations hereunder, but Tenant shall look solely to such seller-lessee, and its successors from time to time in title, for performance of Landlord's obligations hereunder. In any such event, this Lease shall be subject and subordinate to the lease to such seller-lessee. For all purposes, such seller-lessee, and its successors in title, shall be the Landlord hereunder unless and until Landlord's position shall have been assumed by such purchaser-lessor. Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph, in the event of any transfer of title of the Leased Premises by Landlord, Landlord shall thereafter be entirely freed and relieved from the performance and observance of all covenants and obligations hereunder. Both Landlord and Tenant agree to look solely to the assets of the other hereunder for the satisfaction of any liability or claim against such other party under this Lease, it being specifically agreed that in no event whatsoever shall, any general or limited partner, trustees, beneficiaries, officers, directors; employees or stockholders of Landlord or Tenant ever be personally liable for any such liability. Tenant acknowledges that the services and obligations set forth in this Lease are subject to the rules, regulations, actions and decisions of the Condominium Association. (g) Notice to Mortgagee and Ground Lessor. Only after receiving notice from any person, firm or other entity that it holds a mortgage or is a trustee or beneficiary of any deed of trust which includes the Leased Premises as part of the mortgaged premises, or that it is the -21150597750; 4J

ground lessor under a lease with Landlord, as ground lessee, which includes the Leased Premises as part of the demised premises, no notice from Tenant to Landlord shall be effective unless and until a copy of the same is given to such holder, trustee, beneficiary or ground lessor, and the curing of any of Landlord's defaults by such holder, trustee, beneficiary or ground lessor shall be treated.asperformance by Landlord.
Brokerage.Tenant and Landlord each warrant and represent that it has dealt with (h) no broker in connection with the consummation of this Lease, and in the event of any brokerage claims against one party predicated upon prior dealings with the other party, such other party shall defend the same and indemnify and hold harmless the party against which such claim is made from and against any such claim. (i) Certificates.Either party shall, within twenty (20) days after written request of the other, certify by written instrument duly executed and acknowledged to any mortgagee, trustee, beneficiary or purchaser, or proposed mortgagee, trustee, beneficiary or purchaser, or any other person, firm or corporation specified in such request, that, to the best knowledge of the party of whom the estoppel certificate is being requested, this Lease is unmodified and in full force and effect and that such party has no defenses, offsets or counterclaims against the requesting party and is and shall continue to perform its covenants under this Lease (or, if there have been any modifications, that this Lease is in full force and effect as modified and stating the modifications and, if there are any defenses, offsets or counterclaims, setting them forth in reasonable detail), the commencement and expiration dates of the term, the dates through which the Base Rent and Additional Rent and charges due hereunder have been paid and such other matters as such party may reasonably request. Any such certificate may be relied upon by the requesting party and any other person, firm or corporation to whim the same may be exhibited or delivered and the contents of such certificate shall be binding on the party executing same. Estoppel certificates may not vary the terms of this Lease. (j) Offer to Lease.The submission of this document for examination and negotiation does not constitute an offer to lease or a reservation of or an option for the Leased Premises.

January 4, 2012 Michael R. Klein, Chairman Shakespeare Theatre Company 516 Eighth Street SE Washington, DC 20003-2834 Re: Lansburgh Theater Inc. Dear Mr. Klein: I am in recent receipt of your undated letter summarizing discussions we have had concerning possible renewal of the lease for the Lansburgh Theater. There are numerous inaccuracies in that letter; but it is obvious that it would be fruitless to debate those points any further. Our positions are so far apart they are irreconcilable. I have been advised by counsel that by virtue of the termination of the lease on July 31, 2011, the Shakespeare Theatre Company ("STC") is no longer the supported organization with respect to Lansburgh Theater, Inc. ("LTI"). Pursuant to Article Fourth of the Articles of Incorporation, LTI is required to be operated for the benefit of, to perform the functions of, or to carry out the purposes of, one or more successor supported organizations as shall be selected by the Board of Directors. Your letter makes it clear that we will not be able to come to terms on a lease renewal. Accordingly, you should make the necessary arrangements to vacate the premises demised by the lease on or before March 1, 2012. LTI is in the process of selecting an appropriate successor organization to be supported by LTI. I have taken the liberty of including a draft letter of resignation of Chris Jennings as a Director of LTI. Please note that the By-laws provide that if STC ceases for any reason to be the Supported Organization (which occurred upon termination of the lease), then STC's designee on the Board shall be removed without cause by the remaining Directors. If I do not receive Mr. Jennings' resignation by January 13, 2012, I intend to give notice for a meeting and ask for his removal. Given the background of our negotiations, I think it is best for all concerned for us to go our separate ways. I take Issue with many of your factual assertions in your letter, but only wish at this time to refute two of those points. First, you imply that certain personal property (theater systems and equipment) belongs to STC. That is incorrect. Personal property in the nature of furniture, fixtures and equipment is owned by LTI. Second, you state that LTI has a history of not disbursing funds for capital improvements to the theater. That is also not correct. Please be advised that in the beginning of 2007 the value of the Cash Fund was $703,350. Over the course of the period from the beginning of 2007 to the end of 2010, $280,000 plus interest income of $19,501 was added to the Cash Fund (during 2011. your August 2010 rent was deposited) and $365,598 was expended on capital improvements for the Theater, leaving a Cash Fund balance of $586,347, after subtracting additional expenses of $50,906. I look forward to your cooperation in making a smooth transition in vacating the premises. Sincerely,

Kenneth Ktozy - Pr

It has come to my attention that, in your role as president of Lansburgh Theater, Inc. ("LTI"), you have written to The Shakespeare Theatre Company, Inc.

The Honorable Irvin B. Nathan Attorney General for the District of Columbia 441 Fourth Street, N.W. Suite 1100S Washington, DC 20001 Re: Lansburgh Theater, Inc.

Dear Mr. Attorney General: Your letter dated February 24, 2012 has been referred to our attention as counsel to Lansburgh Theater, Inc. ("LTI"). We welcome the opportunity to address any questions or concerns that your office may have with respect to LTI. The nature of the present controversy between LTI and The Shakespeare Theatre Company, Inc. ("STC") is fundamentally a business disagreement between two charitable organizations over how their respective charitable purposes can best be achieved given aging theater premises and equipment and changed funding sources. We believe that these matters are appropriately left to the respective boards of each organization and do not require the intervention of your office in what is essentially a negotiation over whether to extend a lease that has expired, and , if so, on what terms. As described below, any allegations that STC has made to precipitate your inquiry are without merit and, we believe, intended merely to gain an advantage in a difficult business negotiation. Nevertheless, in response to your letter we will outline the justification for the actions taken by LTI and will explain the background of the relationship between LTI and STC. LTI was formed by Articles of Incorporation filed on February 26, 1992 in connection with the development of the Lansburgh Complex Condominium Association (the "Condominium") by Gunwyn/Lansburgh Limited Partnership (the "Partnership"). It was designed to serve as the mechanism through which the Partnership would satisfy its 20-year commitment to provide community arts space for the Washington, D.C. community. The Partnership's commitment was embodied in a Covenant Agreement (the "Covenant") dated April 8, 19881 between the Partnership and the Pennsylvania Avenue Development Corporation. As relevant here, the Partnership undertook an obligation in the Covenant to provide community arts space for a stated period of time to "accommodate visual and performing arts space, exhibition space, and a performing arts theatre with space for approximately four hundred and fifty (450) seats." The Partnership also undertook a commitment, for a fourteen year period, to provide financial support to the arts entity in the amount of $1 million and to net lease the community arts space at minimal base rents sufficient only to pay for the operating and utility costs of the community arts space.

The Covenant was subsequently amended three times.

{B1394579; 8}
BOSTON NEW YORK WASHINGTON, DC
35% PCW

Irvin B. Nathan Page 2 March 5, 2012 LTI was created as the arts entity contemplated by the Covenant. The Partnership funded LTI first with a donation of Unit 3 of the Condominium (namely, the theatre premises) and subsequently with the $1 million called for under the Covenant. The donation of Unit 3 was not required under the Covenant, but was done voluntarily by the Partnership to assure the long-term viability of the charitable purposes of LTI. At approximately the same time, LTI entered into a lease of Unit 3 (the "Lansburgh Theater") to The Shakespeare Theatre at the Folger Library, as STC was then known, by lease agreement dated February, 1992 (the "Original Lease"), which established a nominal base rent of $1 per year. The Original Lease was for an initial term ending June 30, 1996 and was renewed for two additional periods of three twelve month "Seasons" at the same nominal rent.2 The obligations under the Covenant for devotion of space to community arts uses expired 20 years after substantial completion of the project in 1991 (i.e., in 2011). Similarly, the $1 million funding commitment under the Covenant made to LTI as the arts entity has been fulfilled by the Partnership. Nevertheless, LTI as a separate charitable entity intends to continue its charitable purposes by owning and leasing the Lansburgh Theater on a nonprofit basis or otherwise functioning to foster performing arts and/or theatre arts. During the extended period of the Original Lease, the success of the Lansburgh Theater was made possible by the financial and other contributions of the Partnership. However, with the knowledge that those contributions could not be permanent and open ended, the board of LTI has undertaken prudent planning for the long-term continuation of the Lansburgh Theater to serve the community arts needs of Washington after expiration of the Partnership's funding obligations. To that end, LTI and STC entered into a Lease Agreement (the "Expired Lease") in September 2007 with a stated term beginning August 1, 2006 and, ending July 31, 2011.3The Expired Lease called for STC to pay Base Rent of $70,000 per year for the five seasons covered under the Expired Lease (an amount far below market value). As part of the same arrangement, LTI consented to permit STC to conduct performances at two venues: (I) the Lansburgh Theater owned by LTI (until then, pursuant to the terms of the Original Lease, STC's exclusive home) and Op the newly opened Harman Hall located nearby at 650 F Street, N.W. By its terms, the Expired Lease ended on July 31, 2011, and STC is currently in holdover status with respect to the leased premises. LTI has been concerned with the long-term viability of the Lansburgh Theater and remains committed to maintaining it as a high quality live theater. to serve the arts needs of the community. In planning for the future, including anticipated capital expenditures in a theater that is now 20 years old with diminished funding commitments by the Partnership, STC's Base Rent payments under the Expired Lease have been deposited to a Reserve Account to be applied for maintenance and repair necessary to maintain the Lansburgh Theater as a high quality theater for the performing and visual arts. LTI considered the period covered by the Expired Lease to be a transition period in the evolution of the Lansburgh Theaterfrom a period during which the Theater had been significantly
2Upon

expiration of the extended terms of the Original Lease, STC remained a tenant at will by agreement with LTI on the same terms through July 31, 2006.

3 By agreement, the parties confirmed that the prior lease between them had been extended through July 31, 2006.

{B1394579; 8).

Irvin B. Nathan Page 3 March 5, 2012 supported by substantial capital contributions that were coming to an end, to one that would require more sustainable financing to maintain it as a high quality live theater. Consistent with this prudent planning for the future, the board of LTI commissioned an independent study of the Lansburgh Theater by Theatre Consultants Collaborative, LLC which produced in August 2011 a detailed study of the theater titled Evaluation and Recommendations, including recommended repairs, recommended renovations and a schedule of suggested maintenance and improvement chronologies (the "TCC Study"). Armed with the information generated by the TCC Study, LTI opened discussions with STC for the appropriate terms of a new lease to assure the long-term viability of the Lansburgh Theater following the July 31, 2011 expiration of the Expired Lease. Without getting mired in the details of the disagreements between the parties, suffice it to say that LTI found the STC negotiating position to be far from reasonable and inconsistent with LTI's duty to provide for the long-term viability of the Lansburgh Theater as a first class venue. Moreover, LTI believes that STC has become accustomed to artificially low rents4 on the Lansburgh Theater which STC has been able to profit from by sub-leasing the Lansburgh Theater to other organizations at market rents and thereby subsidizing its Harman Hall operations. LTI has negotiated in good faith for a renewal of the Expired Lease but has been frustrated by STC's unwillingness to secure the funding for an appropriate reserve to pay for the expenditures that are necessary for the long-term viability of the Lansburgh Theater. The TCC Study provides independent third-party verification of the need for and the amount of those expenditures. Not only does STC not contest the rectitude of the TCC Study, STC Is on record that the TCC Study has significantly understatdd the amount of the needed expenditures. The negotiations appeared to have reached an Impasse following a December 13, 2011 meeting which was discussed in an undated letter sent by Michael Klein on behalf of STC later in December 2011. Mr. Klein's letter contained numerous inaccuracies and appeared to evidence an irretrievable break-down in the negotiations for any renewal of the Expired Lease. Given this backdrop, and with a desire to move forward with an orderly continuation of its charitable purposes, LTI felt that it had no choice but to implement a transition in the operating theater organization to assume tenancy of the Lansburgh Theater as contemplated by LTI's Articles of Incorporation (and described more fully below). Accordingly, LTI notified STC in a letter dated January 4, 2012 that, as a result of the expiration of the Expired Lease, STC was no longer the supported organization of LTI. The By-Laws of LTI require the removal of the STC designee as a Director of LTI under these circumstances. LTI accordingly offered Chris Jennings, the STC designee on LTI's Board, the opportunity to resign rather than being removed. While LTI regrets the negotiations having reached this point, it felt duty bound to move forward. It will obviously take some time to find an appropriate successor to STC which will be able to operate the Lansburgh Theater and to support those operations in a manner adequate to sustain it as a first class theater. It would have been derelict of LTI not to have attempted to assure continuous adherence to its charitable purposes.
4 While

the current dispute Is fundamentally a disagreement over the appropriate level of rents to be paid to support and maintain the Lansburgh Theater, LTI believes that the rent historically paid by SIC has been well below that necessary to satisfy the "nonprofit" standard that LTI remains committed to maintain.

{B1394579; 8}

Irvin B. Nathan Page 4 March 5, 2012 Subsequent to LTI's notification to STC on January 4, 2012, and following a somewhat belligerent and misinformed response by letter dated January 11, 2012 from Michael Klein to Kenneth Krozy (the President of LTI), LTI received a more conciliatory response from STC. That most recent, February 2, 2012, letter suggests that STC may be willing to fund the necessary reserves by payment of rents sufficient to provide for the longterm needs of the Lansburgh Theater. The parties now appear to be In basic agreement as to the amounts required for the maintenance of the Lansburgh Theater over the next 30 years. Their primary disagreement appears to be on the timing of those payments. We do not know whether the parties will be able to resolve their differences. LTI's goal remains to assure that rent payments are sufficient to fund an adequate reserve to provide for the maintenance and capital needs of the Lansburgh Theater going forward. Such rent would still be well below market value and consonant with LTI's objective to provide the venue "on a nonprofit basis" consistent with the regulatory and case law applicable to charities in the Section 501(c)(3) context. See generally, GCM 37257 (September 15, 1977) (discussing general principles applied by the IRS in the "cost/below cost"context). We presume that your letter of inquiry to LTI was precipitated by receipt of a complaint from STC that may have included allegations of improper conduct by LTI. As a result, we think it important to address LTI's conduct and to demonstrate that nothing improper has been done by LTI. Indeed, the only actions taken by LTI to date (other than normal business negotiations in an attempt to renew the Expired Lease with STC) are matters called for under LTI's Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws. Specifically, Article Fourth of the Articles of Incorporation provides:
In the event that . . . the lease agreement pursuant to which [STC] occupies the Theater Premises shall terminate for any reason, the corporation shall forthwith cease to be operated for the benefit of [STC] and shall thereafter be operated for the benefit of, to perform the functions of, or to carry out the purposes of, such one or more Qualified Organizations formed to promote and foster the performing arts, and in particular the theatre arts, as shall be selected by the Board of Directors.

Likewise, Section 7(b) of Article IV of the By Laws of LTI provides:


-

In the event the Supported Organization [STC] . . . ceases for any reason to be the Supported Organization, and . . . the existing Director who Is a designee of the Supported Organization has not tendered his or her resignation as provided In these By-Laws prior to the date upon which his or her successor is to be elected, then the Board of Directors shall remove such Director without cause by affirmative vote of the remaining Directors.

LTI's January 4, 2012 letter to STC did nothing more than notify STC that, as a consequence of the break-down in negotiations to renew the Expired Lease, STC was no longer the Supported Organization and Chris Jennings would be removed as a Director if he did not otherwise voluntarily resign. These are both matters that are mandated by LTI's organic documents and permitted under the applicable rules for supporting organizations. LTI's charitable purposes can only be accomplished with an appropriate tenant for the Lansburgh Theater that is willing and able to promote and to foster the performing arts in the Lansburgh Theater venue. If STC is unable or unwilling to perform this role, it is only natural, proper and consistent with LTI's duties for it to seek a successor Supported Organization.

(81394579; 8}

Irvin B. Nathan Page 5 March 5, 2012 The expiration of the Expired Lease is an accomplished fact. The entire organic structure of LTI is premised on its having in place an appropriate tenant for the Lansburgh Theater. As set forth above, the consequence of STC's having allowed the Expired Lease to expire Is that STC is no longer the Supported Organization. This in turn means that STC loses representation on the LTI Board. LTI was engaged with STC for a number of months to renew the Expired Lease after its expiration; but those efforts appeared to lead to irreconcilable differences, leaving LTI no choice except to move on and to find a successor operating theater organization. We note, parenthetically, that this state of affairs does not leave STC without a venue. Since 2007, STC has owned its own much larger theater, Harmon Hall. There is no danger that STC will be unable to perform for want of a stage. At this point, LTI has no obligation to enter into a new or a renewal lease with STC; and in Fact the Directors may have the duty to consider whether another tenant would better advance the charitable purposes of LTI. One of the factors that may bear on the desirability of LTI continuing its relationship with STC is whether it will further LTI's charitable purposes to enter into a multi-year agreement with a counterparty that resorts to baseless allegations when business negotiations do not go as It wishes. It remains to be seen whether the events that have transpired since LTI's January 4, 2012 letter informing STC of these facts (particularly the conciliatory letter of February 2, 2012) have narrowed the differences between the parties to a point that agreement can be reached. Repeating what we stated at the outset, this Is fundamentally a business disagreement about funding and the proper magnitude and schedule for maintenance of aging theater premises that all parties appear to want to keep as a first class facility. With due respect to your Office, we do not think that anything that has occurred warrants a formal investigations by your Office. Nonetheless, LTI of course remains committed to cooperating and fully answering any questions or concerns that you may have. Sincerely, t J n K. Grah Pa ner Direct line: 617-338-2941 jgraham@sandw.com cc: by 'email to Valerie L. Scott (Valeriel-Scott@dc.gov)

5 We trust that the three allegations mentioned In your letter ((1) raising the rent; (2) terminating STC's tenancy; and (3) removing a director) have been adequately addressed in the narrative response in this letter. The Expired Lease ended by its terms on July 31, 2011, LTI did not "terminate" it; and removal of the STCdesignated director is automatically required under LTI's organic documents. Assuming the Directors wish to continue to consider STC for a new lease or a renewal, the amount of the rent must be mutually agreed upon by the parties and Is the essence of the current dispute. This is a factual matter best left to the business judgment of the respective parties and in our view does not warrant the intervention of the Attorney General.

President, Lansbugh Theater, Inc. 197 First Avenue, Suite 300 Needham Massachusetts, 02494 Dear Mr.Krozy: I'm very disturbed by some news that will affect one of Washington DC's greatest cultural institutions, the Shakespeare Theater. The Lansburgh Theater, Inc. ("LTI"), a non profit corporation organized under the laws of the District of Columbia, was an integral part of the development of the Lansburgh residential building. I understand that you have threatened to declare the 20 year lease of The Shakespeare Theatre Company terminated, and remove the director who serves on. LTI's board as the designated representative of STC pursuant to your Articles of Incorporation. As a long serving member of the City Council of the District of Columbia, I am well aware of the history of this theater and building. The theater was, as you likely know, built for The Shakespeare Theatre, and is dedicated to its use by LTI's Articles of Incorporation. The terms of the understanding with the Pennsylvania Redevelopment . Corporation that enabled the Gunwyn/Lansbug,h partnership to build the Lansburgh Building, and by virtue its exemption from taxation under Section 509(a)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The steps you threaten to take would undermine this long term agreement and would certainly necessitate the Council of the District of Columbia to try to rectify the situation, possibly by making certain that the theater in the Landsburgh building remains a facility in which the Shakespeare Theater Company performs permanently.

I sincerely hope that you will reconsider this plan of action. Please advise me that LTI is taking steps to eliminate this issue before it becomes a matter of public concern. I personally request that you exert every effort to do that, and advise me of that, so that I

and my council" colleagues may take it into consideration in the course of fulfilling our obligations to determine whether to take action in respect of these matters.

This policy is intended to supplement but not replace any applicable state and federal laws governing conflicts of interest applicable to nonprofit organization such as the Corporation.
Section 2. Procedures.Any director, officer or key employee who has a financial interest

in a contract or other transaction presented to the Board or a committee thereof for authorization, approval, or ratification ("interested person") shall make a prompt and full disclosure of his interest to the Board or committee prior to its acting on such contract or transaction. Such disclosure shall include any relevant and material facts known to the interested person about the contract or transaction, which might reasonably be construed to be adverse to the Corporation's interest. A person who has disclosed a financial interest in a transaction or arrangement may abstain from participating in the matter. If such interested person does iot abstain, the members of the body to which such disclosure is made (with the interested person absent) shall thereupon determine whether the disclosure shows that a conflict of interest exist or can reasonably be construed to exist. If the interested person abstains or if a conflict is deemed to exist, the chairperson of the Board or committee, in his sole discretion, may appoint a disinterested person or committee to investigate alternatives to the proposed transaction or .carangement.

Such interested person may be counted in determining whether a quorum is present but may not be counted or be present in the room when the Board or a committee thereof deliberates and takes action on the transaction. Any vote by the disinterested members of the Board or committee in favor of the transaction must be based on a determination that the transaction or arrangement is in the Corporation's best interest, for its own benefit, and that it is fair and reasonable. Minutes shall be taken at a meeting during which a vote on the transaction takes plaee and shall reflect (a) the name of the interested person, the nature of the financial interest, whether the interested person abstained or any action taken to determine whether a conflict of interest was present, and the decision as to whether a conflict of interest existed if one was made; and (b) the names of the persons present for discussions and votes relating to the transaction or arrangement, the content
