The concept of an immortality drink is attested in at least two Indo-European areas: Greek and Sanskrit . The Greek ἀμβροσία ( ambrosia ) is semantically linked to the Sanskrit अमृत ( amṛta ) as both words denote a drink or food that gods use to achieve immortality. The two words appear to be derived from the same Indo-European form * ṇ-mṛ-tós , "un-dying"  ( n- : negative prefix from which the prefix a- in both Greek and Sanskrit are derived; mṛ : zero grade of * mer- , "to die"; and -to- : adjectival suffix). A semantically similar etymology exists for nectar , the beverage of the gods (Greek: νέκταρ néktar ) presumed to be a compound of the PIE roots *nek- , "death", and -*tar , "overcoming".
The Leo Kreielsheimer Theatre ("Leo K") opened in December 1996 as The Rep's "second stage." The Leo K was made possible in great part to a US$2 million gift from The Kreielsheimer Foundation, a US$1 million gift from then board chair Marsha S. Glazer, and the leadership of Capital Campaign chairs Ann Ramsay-Jenkins and Stanley Savage.
