Seven Interesting People We Met at "The Power" of Duff Opening

It’s no secret we get a little giddy the day of an opening night at the Geffen — we finally are free to celebrate another fantastic show! The bonuses? Well, not only do we indulge in continuously free-flowing wine from Malibu Family Wines and yummy snacks courtesy of Napa Valley Grille, we mix-n-mingle with you while trio Angel Town Combo provides a jazzy soundtrack.

Chatting with our patrons — who never play it safe and are always friendly — is a close second to watching the show. Here, meet seven theater lovers who caught our eye last night at the The Power of Duff opening.
