Philadelphia

Another Year, Another Successful AEA Social

For the second year in a row, the Philadelphia Liaison Committee hosted a successful social at Coco's Restaurant & Bar. I had the pleasure of organizing the June 14, 2011 event which attracted more than 40 AEA members and Equity Membership Candidates from the Walnut Street Theatre, the Wilma Theater, People's Light & Theatre Company, the Arden Theatre, the McCarter Theatre and Interact Theatre, among many other area companies.

Bruce Graham, recently returned from Chicago where his play THE OUTGOING TIDE was having a successful run, was glued to the Phillies game as he nibbled on chocolate chip cookies. Stage Manager Pat Adams brought along the cast of the Wilma's MY WONDERFUL DAY and they were thrilled to meet and mingle with local artists. The homemade desserts were so popular that Scott Greer, who had been playing the Flea in THE FLEA AND THE PROFESSOR at the Arden, was seen leaving with several pieces of Jewish apple cake.

The atmosphere was warm and light-hearted. Attendees were eager to relax after performing in or stage managing their shows or just happy to have a night out with fellow Union members enjoying hot appetizers, drink specials and home-baked treats that Pat Sabato and I gladly provided.

Thanks to fellow Committee members Pat Adams, Lori Aghazarian, Tom Helmer, Paul Nolan, Dan Olmstead and Pat Sabato, Photographer Cherie Tay and Equity for helping make the evening a great success.
