King Lear Opening Night Party

Wednesday night at the King Lear Opening Night Party at the Harvey Theater, BAM members toasted the company from Donmar Warehouse for an outstanding performance and an already sold-out run! Sir Derek Jacobi and the cast mingled with the crowd in the Campbell Lobby and celebrated long into the night. Click the link below to read on and check out pictures from the evening's festivities...
BAM Producer Council members and above celebrated Donmar Warehouse and their triumphant sold-out* return to the Harvey Theater stage Wednesday night, enjoying delicious bites from caterer Great Performances and beverages from hometown vendors Brooklyn Gin and Brooklyn Brewery.  New Donmar Warehouse Executive Producer Nick Giles joined BAM President Karen Hopkins and BAM Executive Producer Joe Melillo for remarks at the party and the guests had a terrific time throughout the evening.  

Brooklyn Gin provided another fantastic cocktail for the party, this time created by Adam Schuman at Fatty Cue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  Possessing an inviting yellow hue and named after one of protagonist Lear's not so flattering characteristics, the "Fool's Gold" cocktail was the evening's beverage of choice.  Guests also enjoyed Brooklyn Brewery pilsner and event decor from the always exquisite Fleurs Bella.

It was a fabulous way to close what has been a fantastic Spring Theater Season here at BAM!
