About Face's THE BLACK AND TAN SUPPER CLUB to be Held 10/10 at InterContinental Chicago

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

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.

The BLACK AND TAN SUPPER CLUB 2014 Co-Chairs are Rob Abernathy and Becky Huinker.

"After the success of last year's inaugural Black and Tan Supper Club, I'm excited to co-chair this year's gala. Taking its cue from queer life in the 1930s, the InterContinental could not be a better venue to host this exceptional evening of drinking, dining and entertainment with a nod to Chicago's storied past," comments Co-Chair Rob Abernathy. "It's sure to be an unforgettable event, and a fantastic opportunity to support the programming and education and youth outreach of Chicago's premier LGBTQIA theatre company," adds Co-Chair Becky Huinker.

Proceeds from THE BLACK AND TAN SUPPER CLUB will support About Face Theatre programming, including its groundbreaking and acclaimed Youth Theatre, which provides a safe space where youth can create community and use theatre as a means of activism and empowerment.
