Nearly 200 people attended a performance of Hotel Cassiopeia at BAM and our supper/celebration afterward. Renowned string ensemble Ethel played, toasts to the company from theater luminaries Oskar Eustis and Paula Vogel set a wonderful tone, and food and drink from Great Performances Catering was a hit.


The Jewish Museum and SITI Company gathered for a one-night-only performance of An Evening with Sarah Bernhardt in celebration of the exhibition Sarah Bernhardt: The Art of High Drama.
