As Vin Scully might say, “it was a great night for a Fringe event.” Rain held off on Friday, January 30, when guests of Center Theatre Group's young professionals group, The Fringe, filed into the Kirk Douglas Theatre to attend a performance of Chavez Ravine.
Their night began with the remixed, relived and reloaded Culture Clash show that originally premiered at the Mark Taper Forum nearly 12 years ago.
As the show let out, the lights dimmed in the Kirk Douglas Theatre lobby, music played over the speakers, and The Fringe knew they were in for a fun evening. Guests enjoyed a mix of ballpark snacks, including Dodger Dogs, nachos and churros all served from pushcarts that gave the post-show mixer a lively ballpark feel. As they mingled and caught up with one another, guests also enjoyed a signature vodka cocktail — aptly named The Curveball — courtesy of Ketel One Vodka. The cast and band joined the party and mixed with the young crowd that came to support their show.
Final score: a great time was had by all.
