Time Warp

| March 8, 2016 | Parties National


More than 120 attendees were transported (cocktails in hand, of course!) to the dystopian world of George Orwell’s 1984 for an up-close look at Steppenwolf for Young Adults’ impressive season opener.


Event chairs Jon Blanc, Julia Luscombe and Shilpa Rupani orchestrated a creative behind-the-scenes evening, including an artistic conversation with the production’s lead creative team and on-set tours, before treating guests to an engrossing performance of the theatrical adaptation of the iconic novel.

Guests closed the night with post-show festivities at Balena, but not before raising more than $20,000 in support of Steppenwolf for Young Adults. Since its inception, Steppenwolf Associates has raised nearly $1.5 million for the theater’s arts education program, which gives more than 16,000 families, students and teachers access to quality and enriching theater. Now, that’s worthy of a standing ovation. -Photography by Michael Courier
