Opening Night of Wanamaker’s Pursuit
On Wednesday, April 6, the Arden opened our final mainstage production of the season, Wanamaker’s Pursuit. Sylvan Society members enjoyed a reception at Ristorante Panorama, one of the Arden’s dining partners, prior to the performance. They gathered with members of the design team as well as playwright Rogelio Martinez and director Terry Nolen, to sample Panorama’s fabulous wine selection. The show opened to a sold out house and was followed by a post-show party featuring French-themed cuisine including quiche and chocolate mousse. Post-show party guests included Michael Lisicky author of Meet Me at the Eagle, a novel about the history of the Wanamaker’s department store, representatives from the Philadelphia History Museum, as well as the cast of the show.
