Baby & Company are ardent supporters of the arts and inherent believers in art’s beneficial effects on the quality of our lives. We were pleased to be in attendance at the Intiman Theater's opening of Tony Kushner’s Angels in America, a play in two parts: Millenium Approaches and Perestroika. Millennium Approaches marks in time and bravely reports from the center of the emerging HIV/AIDS crisis.
Seattle’s own Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is a sponsor of the Intiman’s production. Andrew Russell, the creative producing director of the theater pointed out in his pre-show speech, “it’s likely that when a cure for HIV/AIDS is discovered, it will most likely happen in Seattle — at Fred Hutch!”
The crowd was in good spirits with Mayor Ed Murray ending the opening on a high note, “I attended funerals in my 30’s and weddings in my 50’s,” he said to crowd applause noting Washington’s marriage equality act.
Angels in America is nearly 23 years old and as relevant today as when it debuted. We are happy to see the continued education and hope that Angels in America can provide to new audiences.
Andrew Russell wore our Mauro Grifoni Italian wool suit and a micro-print shirt by Anglini. His partner, dancer and Baby & Company model Matt Drews wore an Isabel Beninato cashmere tunic with Esemplaré trousers. Both artists wore Marsèll shoes.
