The cast and crew of CONNECTED, along with their family and friends, celebrated their opening night at 59E59 Theaters' lively E:Bar last night, March 8, immediately following the performance. Scroll down for photos from the festivities!

Joining cast members Gus Birney, Ella Dershowitz, Joachim Boyle, Robby Clater, Midori Francis, Dana Jacks, Thomas Muccioli, and Aria Shahghasemiwere Project Y Artistic Directors Andrew W. Smith and Michole Biancosino, who also directed the play, as well as playwright Lia Romeo. Gus Birney's mother Constance Schulman and her brother Ephraim Birney were on hand for the revelry.

In CONNECTED, characters navigate this tricky terrain through a series of interrelated vignettes: a young girl's most embarrassing moment goes viral, a high school student must choose between real life and role-playing games, two girls spend Saturday night endlessly searching for the "perfect party," and a teacher is accidentally seduced by her student on an internet dating site.

CONNECTED, written by Lia Romeo and directed by Michole Biancosino, runs through Saturday, March 26. The performance schedule is Tuesday -Thursday at 7:30 PM; Friday & Saturday at 8:30 PM; and Sunday at 3:30 PM. Please note: there is no performance on Wednesday, March 16. Performances are at 59E59 Theaters (59 East 59th Street, between Park and Madison Avenues). Tickets are $25 ($17.50 for 59E59 Members).
