Seven Interesting People We Met at "The Night Alive" Opening

We love a good party — and we throw a darn great one here at the Geffen, if we do say so ourselves.

Last night’s opening night party for Conor McPherson’s The Night Alive was no exception. Los Angeles magazine graciously sponsored the festivities, which included munchies from the ever-tasty Napa Valley Grille, wines from Malibu Family Wines (love our bartenders’ pour!) and deep, dark Keurig coffees. The weather was unseasonably balmy even for L.A., and jazz trio Angel Town Combo made mingling on the patio even more appealing.

We did a little mingling ourselves. Meet seven theater lovers who caught our eye.
