Lawmakers gearing up for Shakespearean performance

At this year’s event (The Hill is one of several media sponsors), the lawmakers will be getting a little help with their prose from some pros. “Veep” star Anna Chlumsky and actor John Leguizamo (who took on the role of Tybalt Capulet in the 1996 Leonardo DiCaprio-starring version of “Romeo and Juliet”) will join in on all the 16th century-style action.

Also among those poised to perform: The Hill Managing Editor Bob Cusack, ABC News Senior Washington Editor Rick Klein, CBS Chief White House Correspondent Major Garrett, The Creative Coalition CEO Robin Bronk, and MSNBC “Hardball” host Chris Matthews.
