Where: The Alley Theatre Margaret Alkek Williams Terrace Level.
The Scoop: More than 250 Alley patrons in a celebratory mood gathered for the first of many to come opening night festivities in the newly renovated theater. They were welcomed at the private pre-performance dinner by Alley artistic director Gregory Boyd and Alley managing director Dean Gladden.
City Kitchen provided the British-themed dinner in a nod to the comedy's origins. Guests feasted on Angus beef tenderloin, shrimp salad, Jersey royal potato salad, baby green beans and English berry pudding.
Trying out another new space during intermission, the VIPs mingled in the Connie and Roger Plank Family Green Room and following the play, they shared champagne toasts with cast members.
Who: Lynn Wyatt, Jane Gladden, Stephanie and Ernie Cockrell, Mark Seavers and Cindy Kovacs, Carmen and Butch Mach, Janet Gurwitch and Ron Franklin, Trini Mendenhall, Connie and Roger Plank and Mady and Ken Kades.
