The Pansy Craze
Friday, October 10, 2014 at 7:00PM
 
Benefiting About Face Theatre & About Face Youth Theatre

For one exclusive night, step back into the golden age of Chicago’s Bohemian society as About Face Theatre presents THE BLACK AND TAN SUPPER CLUB on Friday, October 10, 2014 from 7 pm – 10 pm at the swanky InterContinental Chicago, 505 N. Michigan Ave. on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile. This magical throwback inspired by the 1930s cultural phenomenon known as the “Pansy Craze” will feature an evening of cocktails, dining and thrilling performances.

 

Travel back to Prohibition-era Chicago, when underground gay social clubs flourished in neighborhoods like Towertown on the northside and Bronzeville and Woodlawn on the southside. During the aptly-named “Pansy Craze,” gays, lesbians and other “non-conformists” flocked to these clubs known for their glamorous fashion, provocative performers, drag balls and rousing music.

Dress to the nines and step out with your friends at the most exciting event of the season!

 

Presented at the wonderful and historic InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile. 505 N Michigan Ave.

Tickets for THE BLACK AND TAN SUPPER CLUB are available at www.aboutfacetheatre.org or by calling (773) 784-8565.
