Karaoke, air hockey and an evil hunchback
Our STC staff gathered for a little holiday merriment on Monday night, holding our annual party this year in the lobby of Woolly Mammoth. Yes – a rival theatre hosted us! But their pad is so darn hip, and we had such a great time there last year, that we had to go back.
This year’s theme was Shakespeare’s Pub, so in addition to the yummy eats and drinks, we played pool, darts and the aforementioned air hockey. And no party full of theatre people is complete without an opportunity for blatant exhibitionism. Hence, the karaoke. My personal favorite: education staffer Joe Angel Babb singing “Nine to Nine,” his own version of Dolly Parton’s classic. Another highlight was the chance to party with Beaux cast members Veanne Cox and Chris Innvar.
Now it’s Friday, and this office, like most in Washington, is as quiet as a theatre on a Monday. Most of the staff has fled the city for snow-covered hills, plains, [insert idyllic setting here]. Meanwhile, the cast of Richard III is rehearsing away … nothing like the War of the Roses to kindle a little holiday spirit!
