Playhouse hosts Young Professionals Party
Westport Country Playhouse's newly formed Young Professionals Network presented an evening of food, wine, beer, live music and a performance of the Pulitzer Prize-winning comic drama "Dinner with Friends," by 2010 Tony Award nominee Donald Margulies, on Thursday, June 10.
The party will began at 6:30 p.m. on the Playhouse patio, and was followed by the play.
"Geared towards young professionals ages 21 to 40, the Young Pros party is an opportunity to come together here at the Playhouse in a fun and interactive setting to enjoy some in-person social networking and a terrific show at an affordable price," said Jenn Bond, Playhouse community relations liaison.
Food was provided by Burger Bar & Bistro. Located in South Norwalk since 2006, the little restaurant has earned rave reviews and "best burger" accolades from area media outlets and online food chatters.
Live music was performed by Rambunction, playing jazz, funk, jam and dance. The band is led by Renard Boissiere, vox and keys; with Chris Morrison, guitar; Steve Clarke, bass; and Kurt Berglund, drums and percussion.
