Stratford lawmakers from both parties joined together to push for state funding to rebuild the Shakespeare Theatre after it burned down last weekend.

Stratford’s legislative delegation sent a letter to Gov. Ned Lamont, requesting $5 million in state bonding assistance to help rebuild the theater.

“This is something that’s important to our community, and it’s so important that I think it transcends politics,” says state Sen. Kevin Kelly.
