WaterTower Pride mixer at S4 postponed

WaterTower Theatre’s launch party for its upcoming Pride series of plays, set for Thursday at Station 4, has been postponed “due to circumstances beyond our control,” according to Greg Patterson, the director of development and marketing for the company. The event will be rescheduled for September and will include live performances of scenes from the upcoming musical Spring Awakening.

The Addison theater has a reputation for high-quality productions, often with serious themes (including gay issues) in regional premieres like Take Me Out and the upcoming August: Osage County, as well as the Out of the Loop Fringe Festival every spring.
