Total Eclipse 2007

Our second annual Total Eclipse Benefit at the Bluewater Grill is going to include a new twist in the entertainment – a sneak peek at the next two seasons and a chance to tell us exactly what those two seasons should be.2007_benefit_web.gif

In addition to celebrating the beginning of the 2007 Pearl Cleage season, we’ll be announcing a two-year retrospective of our first ten playwrights in 2008 and 2009. The ensemble (myself included) will be performing scenes from their plays during the party, and we’ll be asking guests to help us decide which plays to explore in the multi-season celebration.

The 2008 season will focus on Tennessee Williams, Lillian Hellmann, Neil Simon, Lanford Wilson and Jean Cocteau. That puts a lot of fantastic plays on the table, and we’d love to hear your opinion about them.

We’ll also be celebrating Pearl Cleage – Blues for an Alabama Sky opens a week from tonight (March 18), and we’re excited about Late Bus to Mecca, Hospice and Bourbon at the Border later this year.

Oh, and there’ll be cocktails, food, music, and a raffle with prizes including theater, ballet and sports tickets, restaurant and hotel packages, original artwork, and more. The party’s at 2 pm on Sunday, March 25 at the Bluewater Grill, 520 N Dearborn. You can order tickets online or visit our Web site for more information. Hope to see you there.
