The Dinner Party
The Ballroom at the historic Turnblad Mansion comes alive on Wednesday nights this holiday season, with pop-up theater performances.
Imagine the unexpected conversations between four Nordic legends as they sit down to share a festive winter feast. Carl Larson, Sweden's own Norman Rockwell, side by side with Edvard Munch, the Norwegian artist, Snorri Sturluson (the Icelandic poet responsible for penning the narrative of Norse mythology in the 13th century), and Swedish actress Ingrid Bergman. In this original short play, each character drops better-known and lesser-known secrets about themselves as well as sharing dishes specific to their country and period of origin.
Included with museum admission; no reservations required. The show runs twice each evening for 20 minutes, beginning at 6 and 7 p.m.
