The Mary-Arrchie Theatre and its numerous supporters will gather at the Four Moon Tavern tonight for a celebration of what’s been an eventful 27th season. Artistic Director Rich Cotovsky was honored with a special Jeff Award, while expertly handling lead roles in a Superior Donuts - Remount and Uncle Bob; and The Glass Menagerie, a brainstorm from returning member Hans Fleischmann, was critically acclaimed and exceeded any possible dreams Mary-Arrchie could have had regarding its financial success. Four Moon Tavern will donate a portion of the money from food and drinks ordered between 8:00 and 10:00 PM tonight o help fund the Mary-Arrchie’s coming season.
The event will also be a chance for participants in this year’s 25th Anniversary Abbie Hoffman Died For Our Sins to do a little post-festival celebrating. It’s always inspiring to see members of various theatre groups continuing that community spirit of Abbie Fest. In related news, Carlo Lorenzo Garcia will be leaving his post as Mary-Arrchie’s producing director after five years. He’s off to seek creative endeavors in Los Angeles. Tonight would be a good opportunity to congratulate Garcia, who’s also heavily involved in various charities, on his accomplishments, and wish him luck. Four Moon Tavern is located at 1847 W. Roscoe in Chicago.
