AEA Philly Spring Social A Huge Success

By: Julie Czarnecki
Philadelphia Equity Liaison Committee

The Philadelphia AEA Liaison Committee hosted its 3rd annual Equity Social at Coco’s Restaurant and Bar on June 12, 2012. I had the pleasure of organizing another tremendously successful event that attracted more than 40 AEA members and EMC’s from Philadelphia, New Jersey, Delaware and New York.

The union actors and stage managers hailed from the Walnut Street Theatre, Interact Theatre, the Wilma Theater, McCarter Theatre, Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre, among many other local companies.

The casual and friendly atmosphere was the perfect setting for renewing old friendships and making new ones. Attendees sampled complimentary appetizers, homemade desserts, and great drink specials.

The leading man in the Wilma’s ANGELS IN AMERICA, Luigi Sotille, was happy to relax with some ol’ pals. Stage Manager Anthony Bullock and his partner, new to the Philadelphia area, were warmly welcomed by some of our local theatre artists. One of our favorite Philly actresses, Christie Parker, who recently played the title role in HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE with Theatre Horizon, begged me for my Apple Cake recipe. Sorry Christie, it’s a closely guarded family secret!

Thanks to Coco’s for being the most gracious of hosts.

And thanks to my fellow committee members who made the night another grand success: Chris Sapienza, our photographer; Paul Nolan, Pat Adams, and Seth Reichgott who volunteered as our Greeters; Barry Braitt who helped set up; Pat Sabato and Tom Helmer who offered counsel and support; and Kittson O’Neill and Cheryl Williams who, along with myself, provided our yummy desserts.

Please join us next time: the social keeps getting better and better!
