Writers Theatre’s annual benefit, the WordPlay Gala, is one of the hottest events on Chicago’s social calendar. An exciting evening of special entertainment, music, and dining in a beautiful setting, the WordPlay Gala brings together Writers Theatre supporters in a unique celebration of the word and the artist.
The 2017 WordPlay Gala took place on Saturday, April 22, 2017 at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel in Jeanne Gang’s iconic Aqua Tower in downtown Chicago. Celebrating our 25th Anniversary season, this was an evening of elegant dining and a performance featuring Writers Theatre favorites.
That evening, Writers Theatre Artistic Director Michael Halberstam also presented longtime supporters and benefactors of the arts, Alexandra C. and John D. Nichols, with the 2017 “Spirit of Writers Theatre” Award.
The spectacular evening celebrated the company’s rich history and its new home designed by Gang and Studio Gang Architects. Thank you to our fabulous Co-Chairs and everyone who helped make the event such a success.
