The Alley Theatre has launched the newest perch in town for young professionals looking for social interaction and cultural enrichment — Scene. Close to 75 young professionals gathered at the theater Friday night for the inaugural gathering of Scene that included taking in Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Suicide Club and after moved on to new hot spot Batanga.

Before the performance the young theater enthusiasts enjoyed a taste of London with refreshments that included mini-Yorkshire puddings and pesto scones.

The on-stage suspense evolved into light-hearted socializing on the Batanga patio as Sherlock himself (aka Todd Waite) and Dr. Watson (aka Sidney Williams) joined the party.

The late-night partygoers included Katie and Ryan PapettiMarc Eichenbaum, Mary O'Black, Melissa Buce, Joel Glover, Julie Stephenson, Anna Tran, Matt Benton, Barry Alsup, Caroline Cole, Katie Chachere, Casey Monahan and Kristin Kruse.
