On Saturday, February 22 we hosted our second annual Party in the Wings, and it was even more fun than last year! Seattle Met and Reyka Vodka sponsored this signature CLUB 20/30 event, which kicked off with a private pre-show cocktail hour in our upper lobby. Guests enjoyed beer, wine, and our Venus in Fur-inspired cocktail, “I’m Not Coming Home Tonight, Stacy,”—a delicious Raspberry Mint Moscow Mule (served in copper mugs, of course!). The 20-30-somethings on the Rep staff had a great time meeting and chatting with partygoers.
Next, guests headed to the balcony, where we roped off open seating just for party-goers. They enjoyed a performance of sultry Broadway export Venus in Fur, which was followed by an exclusive talk-back with Casting Director Erin Kraft. Erin explained how casting this two-person show involved an in-depth search to find the perfect actors.
After the discussion, guests took a secret staircase down to the backstage area, where waiters were ready with hors d’oeuvres (the most popular was the cheeseburger slider on a pretzel bun) and more drinking. Venus in Fur actors Gillian Williams and Michael Tisdale emerged from their dressing rooms to join the party.
