Girls' Night Out!
Over here in "Marketing-land," we're always looking for new and interesting ways to bring people to see our productions. Usually we start with the themes of the show, and then riff off of that to brainstorm ideas and see what sticks. Promotional cocktails for The Cocktail Hour, an Indian/jazz fusion concert for The Jungle Book. We've had our fun, and Venus in Fur has been no exception. After a misguided promotional endeavor involving a very large box of condoms (Errrr...let's save that one for another time — Ed.), we kicked things into gear for our Girls Night Out, — an evening of fun, fashion, wine, and chocolate. We knew we wanted a fashion show, so we approached Boston-area designer Sara Campbell to provide the looks. She and her team were super supportive, and outfitted our models with her newest looks for Spring 2014.
With delicious bite-sized desserts provided by Finale (my favorite was the raspberry mousse in a dark chocolate cup...mmmmmm...) and wine provided by Lapis Lunda, the event started right after the performance. The lower lobby was aglow in pink thinks to our production crew, and patrons wandered down to eat, drink, and take a look at a pop-up shop set up in the donor lounge by Sara Campbell.
After the obligatory socializing was over (and all the desserts were gone!), it was time to start the show! The music started, and the models strutted their stuff down our makeshift runway. But these models were not professional models; they were all friends of the Huntington! In hues of summery pinks and oranges, to the Cape Cod colors of navy and khaki, it was the models that absolutely made the event. So while marketing is proud of our success, we can't take all the credit. Thanks ladies, you're fabulous.
