The theme for Saturday night’s Commonwealth Shakespeare Company Gala was “Vintage Vegas,” which means the Mandarin Oriental was packed with VIPs in feathers, fedoras, and a few Rat Pack-inspired ensembles. Guests at the benefit included Martha Mason, Snappy Dance Theater cofounder, and her husband, Jurgen Weiss, of The Brattle Group; founding artistic director of Commonwealth Shakespeare Company Steven Maler; Cadmus Group chief operating officer Chris Hitchcock; chief executive of the American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts Jarrett Barrios, former Lieutenant Governor Kerry Healey, and salon boss Tony Liquori.
