Join the Yale Club for a fabulous evening at the theater.  We will gather for the opening night performance of Breakfast at Eight, a brand new play by local Houston playwright and Yale alum, Thomas Hagemann, featuring actor and Yale alumna Shannon Emerick.  We will join the cast, director and playwright for a backstage reception afterwards. 

More about the play, Breakfast at Eight:

For many years, John and Abby have taken for granted the indestructibility of their marriage, yet in a long night of reckoning, they face a new reality and now must choose whether to move forward with each other or alone. From the dark of night literally into the light of the morning, Breakfast at Eight is a very honest, compassionate look at the fragility of even the strongest bonds.

More about the playwright, Thomas Hagemann:
In his day job, Thomas Hagemann is a partner with Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP in Houston. He is a trial lawyer whose practice focuses on white-collar criminal matters, and he has repeatedly been recognized by a variety of publications as one of the best lawyers in this area, both in Texas and nationally. He graduated in 1978 from Rice University, magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, and obtained his law degree from Yale.  

By night and at other odd times, Mr. Hagemann is a lover of theater and performance. He has been an amateur actor since sixth grade when he starred in Herbie Gets a Haircut, although more widely known roles include Antonio in The Tempest, the Inspector in Statements after an Arrest, Demetrius in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Nick in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? While
in Los Angeles, he also wrote an as-yet unpublished play about a murder in federal prison entitled Nothing to Lose. Last, but by no means least, his wife and muse is a professional actress, Ms. Christianne Mays, when she is not busy performing the role of mother of two teenagers. Tom is currently working on the completion of two other plays, 1946 and The End, which,
together with Breakfast at Eight, will form a trilogy.
