“This is a great local event that brings women together. HERcity is great way to get to know downtown and go into beautiful places that you would never expect are in San Jose. I have participated in several HER City events and have had the best time at each of them. I have met some amazing women who I now call friends. I have brought different girlfriends with me each time and they have loved every moment as well.”

April 16: HER city “Under the City Lights”
The evening started in the musical 1910-era setting of Orchestria Palm Court Restaurant. Got a quick history of the orchestrias while sampling locally sourced fare and tasting J.Lohr Wines. Then, enjoyed a special Q&A with City Lights Theater Company Executive Artistic Director Lisa Mallette prior to the show. M Butterffly, by David Henry Hwang , 1988 Tony Award for Best Play, closely parallels the events of Puccini’s famous opera “Madame Butterfly,” and becomes a powerful exploration of East-West relations and the persistent romanticism that continues to cloud and complicate them to this day.
