The McCarter Theater in Princeton, NJ just held an After Hours party following the play The How and the Why starring Mercedes Ruehl and Bess Rous. The party was a perfect way for theater goers who have just seen a powerful piece, to gather and converse about it.
As with the Fezziwig party, this one was catered by Chez Alice. There was an open bar, hot and cold morsels to indulge in and a dessert section with cookies and chocolate covered strawberries. In addition to the food and drink, there were door prizes, including spa treatments, and 50/50 raffles.
I feel like I’m becoming a regular at these events, and for good reason. It’s a great ________ night. Fill in the blank with date, theater, family, girls’, etc. Where else can you watch quality theater, get delicious food, and an open bar?
I just checked the McCarter site, and I see there are still two more parties on their schedule! A party will follow the play Crimes of the Heart on Friday, March 18 at 8 PM, and one follows Sleeping Beauty Wakes on Friday, May 13 at 8 PM. Though I think there isn’t a bad seat in the house, the BETTER seats are selling fast, and are almost sold out for those evenings. Considering you don’t pay much more to attend these parties, I would highly recommend buying tickets now for these combos for a great night out on the town at a reasonable price!
