Denton County finally began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, and the first pair to get theirs were Whitney Hennen and Sara Bollinger. If Hennen looks familiar to you, there’s a reason. She’s a talented actress in North Texas, who won a Dallas-Fort Worth Theater Critics Forum Award in 2011 for her intoxicating ditzy blonde role in Uptown Players’ Victor/Victoria. And she’ll next be seen trodding the boards next month in WaterTower Theatre’s production of Sweet Charity. She and her partner of six years, Sara Bollinger, were previously married outside of Texas.
We already had a story in the works about Bollinger and Hennen, so there’s more to come!
