On Friday, April 24, Center Theatre Group’s young professionals group, The Fringe, got together for the irreverent comedy Immediate Family at the Mark Taper Forum. Over fifty Fringe members were in attendance and a wonderful performance set the tone for a great night of mingling and partying.
After the show, The Fringe hopped on a complimentary shuttle to downtown hotspot Faith and Flower, where they were joined by the entire cast for a festive post-show mixer. Drinks and food kept coming as cast members and Fringe members shared conversation and company well past midnight. At the end of the evening, playwright Paul Oakley Stovall and Fringe President Charles Chatelain thanked everyone and raffled away some prizes, including theatre tickets and gift certificates. Whether it was the people, the atmosphere or the signature cocktails prepared by Faith and Flower’s mixologists, the event turned into a lively celebration of theatre that won’t soon be forgotten.
The Fringe is a group of young professionals in their 20s, 30s and 40s who love theatre and believe in its importance in Los Angeles.
