Steppenwolf Theatre Company’s world-renowned ensemble will join more than 600 members of Chicago’s corporate, civic and cultural communities for Gala 2015 on Saturday, May 9, at Steppenwolf, 1650 N Halsted St. The Gala will offer guests a unique opportunity to connect with Steppenwolf ensemble members in their artistic home while enjoying a preview of upcoming productions, cocktails, a gourmet dinner, auction, music and dancing with Steppenwolf co-founder Gary Sinise and his Lt. Dan Band!
Gala 2015, co-chaired by Eileen and Christopher Murphy and Rhonda and Scott Swanson, will begin with a special tribute to Martha Lavey in celebration of her leadership as Artistic Director of Steppenwolf for the last 20 years. Following the tribute, guests will view an exclusive showcase of scenes from Steppenwolf’s U.S. premiere production of The Herd by Rory Kinnear, directed by ensemble member Frank Galati and featuring ensemble members Francis Guinan, John Mahoney, Molly Regan and Lois Smith.
Following cocktails and performance, guests will make their way to a theatrically-designed tent created by Event Creative to enjoy a gourmet dinner and the annual live auction featuring once-in-a-lifetime adventures with Steppenwolf ensemble members and artists.
The evening wraps up with dancing and live music by Gary Sinise and his Lt. Dan Band and a late night DJ set. (And believe me, no one leaves this party early!)
