Studio Theatre plows ahead with scaled-down gala in the snow
While most D.C. hosts cancelled parties this weekend, the troupers at Studio Theatre declared the gala must go on! And so it did, in defiantly scaled-down style. Of an expected 400 guests, only 150 made it to Logan Circle Saturday night, in a climate-adjusted range of attire. Kate Debelack and boyfriend Ed Poe were a study in contrasts: He in jeans, she in a cocktail dress and heels. "We Metro'd down to U Street, and then Ed carried everything" -- including her change of clothes -- "in a backpack," said Debelack, an actress and instructor at Studio's conservatory. With a snowbound caterer, theater staff pitched in to cook dinner; board members brought quiche and brownies. The night was a tribute to retiring artistic director Joy Zinoman, who was spoofed by drag queen Lypsinka. Said gala chair Liz Cullen: "Joy felt the show must go on."
