The $25 ticket includes the theatrical performance and pre-show wine, appetizers and live music. The first “A Taste of Tuesdays” in April attracted more than 200 people.

“With this initial success and growing popularity, we plan to continue scheduling ‘A Taste of Tuesdays’ for each Tuesday preview performance this season,” said Jenn Bond, Playhouse community relations liaison. “The evening offers a fun and social atmosphere—a complete package at an affordable price to enjoy after a work day.”

A preview performance of “The Pavilion” by Craig Wright will start at 8 p.m. “The Pavilion,” a 2005-2006 Drama Desk Award nominee for Outstanding Play, is a funny and touching look into human relationships on a cosmic scale.
