Playhouse on Park is offering a special Young Professionals rate in conjunction with its Main Stage Series historical drama, Intimate Apparel, on February 17. Spend your Saturday evening mingling with other young professionals, then stay for a show! A pre-show networking reception will be held from 6:30-7:45pm, and the show begins at 8pm. The ticket price Young Professionals (ages 21-35) is just $20.
Relax with some hors d'oeuvres and unwind with a signature cocktail featuring Hartford Flavor Company's Wild Moon Spirits - all complimentary, of course. After the reception, kick back and enjoy Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Lynn Nottage's Intimate Apparel: In 1905, Esther, an African American seamstress, supports herself by creating exquisite lingerie for wealthy Manhattan clients. When a letter arrives from a stranger, it awakens a desire within her that leads to the love that she yearned for, but it is nothing like she expected. As described by playwright Paula Vogel, "Lynn Nottage's work explores depths of humanness, the overlapping complexties of race, gender, culture and history—and the startling simplicity of desire—with a clear tenderness, with humor, with compassion."
