This past bright and sweltering Saturday, October 10, Geffen Playhouse hosted a 20th anniversary open house. Over 300 subscribers, supporters and friendly folks simply curious to find out what the Geffen is all about enjoyed breakfast goodies courtesy of Gelson’s Markets, mimosas and Hint waters as they mingled and goofed around with fun “thought bubble” signs.

Our new Executive Director Gil Cates, Jr. took the stage to talk about the Geffen and the work we do as a non-profit arts organization, and Artistic Director Randall Arney shared insight about the Geffen’s current season. TV/film/stage actress Merle Dandridge, a Geffen alumnus (By The Way, Meet Vera Stark; Atlanta), capped the morning by telling stories about why she feels at home at the Geffen.

Check out the fun for yourself!
