Political discourse usually finds a way to turn into a verbal match especially when some potent libations are involved but in the case of Thursday’s (4/7) Politics and Pinot, it was all lively and fun.
Carlyle Playwright Thomas Bradshaw, Director Benjamin Kamine
The Scenemakers board of Goodman Theater hosted the Politics and Pinot themed reception as well as viewing of the new play Carlyle. Guests started the night with pinot, hors d’oeuvres and other libations in the theater’s rehearsal space. Playwright Thomas Bradshaw addressed guests briefly before those in attendance were ushered into the theater to see Carlyle. The topical and outrageous political comedy centers around Carlyle Meyers, an ambitious African American lawyer working for the party who agrees to share why he became a member of the GOP. Carlyle is directed by Benjamin Kamine.
