New Hazlett Theater hosts Salon 6

Sunday, Sept. 23, 2012, 9:20 p.m.
 

“(Pittsburgh) is the Paris of Appalachia. ... If you will allow me, I will speak in your Yinzer English.”

It took a moment before it sunk in that Mademoiselle Belle Haleine, dressed to kill in a frock that would have made any proper Victorian lady swoon, was none other than Tom Sokolowski.

The signature specs are always a giveaway.

Thursday, and the theater was hosting Salon 6, its sixth anniversary party garnished with a 1920s French twist that kicked off with a series of performances by internationally renowned violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR), the Texture Contemporary Ballet, actor-comedian Alan Olifson, cabaret and jazz singer Trevor McQueen, acrobat Erin the Aerialist, and jazz musician Mark Flaherty.

Afterward, executive director Rene Conrad mingled with the likes of Ken and board prez Pam McCrory, Corey LeChat, Sara Aros, Michele de la Reza, Charlie Humphrey, Evan Rosenberg, Bill and MaryAnn King and Mike Sullivan for a champagne reception.
