Signature Theatre will hold a GLBT – focused affair, “Pride Night” on Friday, March 25. The event will feature a premier of its latest production, “And The Curtain Rises,” the account of how the first American musical, “The Black Crook,” was created. The play will follow with a cocktail and hors d’oeuvres reception. The perennial event that occurs on certain Fridays within the year is a staple that goes back 12 years, says publicist Peter Eramo, Jr. “We wanted to create a special event specifically for members of the GLBT community in the DC and Northern Virginia area.”

The theatre offers shuttle service available from Dupont Circle, on the corner of 20th and P streets NW that will take patrons to and from the theatre. The shuttle departs at 6:30 p.m. and will leave from Signature at 11:30 p.m.

Those who attend will have a great theater experience, full of entertainment, says Eramo. “In short,” he adds, “Pride Night is always a blast to be at.”

The reception will last one hour. Tickets for the event are $87. Round trip tickets for the bus are $5 and can be paid for in cash at pickup. Reservations must be made at the box office upon purchasing tickets. The performance begins at 8 p.m. The theater is located at 4200 Campbell Avenue, Arlington Va.
