Harvey Who!?

On what turned out to be the first night since Harvey that anybody felt like partying, the Young Supporters of the Alley Theatre, which was badly damaged in the storm, defiantly gathered in large numbers — at least 250 — to kick off the 2017-1018 cultural season and raise funds for the storied institution. Monsour Taghdisi donated his high-tech-glam Life HTX space, whose larger-than-life projection screens sported old movie posters from Spartacus and others, highlighting chairs Kathleen and Scotty Reynolds’ vintage-Hollywood theme. DJ Senega kept the dance floor full all night, with revelers fueled up on fun food from Underbelly. Biscuits with shaved ham and whipped Dijon, anyone? The total till: nearly $60K.
