Abingdon Theatre Company—which has produced 77 new American plays in its 20-year history, kicked off its 2012-2013 Season with a wonderful party that felt to all partiers attending like a gathering of old, intimate friends, since according to ATC, "It's our 20th Season and we want to celebrate with all the Artists that we know and love".

Shirley Herz fueling herself for the night's fun to come! 

It was a night of "Eat, drink, dance, reminisce about old shows (with photos and souvenirs), kick around ideas about new projects, networking, and generally enjoy each other's company!"
