WorkShop Theater Company will hold a costume benefit in support of its production of Miss Lulu Bett, by Zona Gale (the first play written by a women to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama) at the historic theater club The Players. The theme of the event will be a Prohibition speakeasy, with entertainment in both the Main Ballroom and the Sargent Room. In the speakeasy tradition, beer & wine will be served in coffee cups.
The event will relive the days when The Players was a gents-only establishment (its first female member was Helen Hayes, who joined in 1989) and the women who enjoyed its ambiance did so as guests only. Entertainment will include singing, dancing and close-up magic from the cast and company artists of the WorkShop, vaudevillian pianist Annie Lebeaux, and others.
