Thank you to all those who attended this year’s
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 2019 WordPlay Gala took place on Saturday, April 13, 2019 at the Four Seasons Hotel Chicago. Each year, a hallmark of the event is the performance featuring Writers Theatre artists which, this year, featured a look at the theatre through the lens of Iconic 80s performers.
That evening, Writers Theatre Executive Director Kathryn M. Lipuma and Artistic Director Michael Halberstam presented longtime WT supporters and Glencoe residents, Jennifer and Alec Litowitz, with the 2019 Spirit of Writers Theatre Award.
Thank you to our fabulous Co-Chairs Lori Muller, Sara Pfaff and Mary Pat Studdert and everyone who helped make the event such a success.
Save the Date for WordPlay 2020 which returns to the Four Seasons Hotel Chicago on April 18, 2020!
