I enjoy my theater with a side of food. A live art exchange will provide that this weekend.
Motherlodge is an organization that creates spaces or “lodges” for artists to present their work and collaborate. Motherlodge has brought the theater group Conni’s Avant Garde Restaurant to The Rudyard Kipling for performances of Irina’s Naming Day Party, a rework of Chekhov’s Three Sisters.
Here’s where things get fun — the show includes dinner and cake.
The first night of the show was Thursday, but there are additional performances at 5:30 p.m. Friday, March 29, and 7 p.m. Saturday, March 30. Tickets are $25 (includes the dinner and cake), and you can buy them here. All shows take place at The Rudyard Kipling, 422 W. Oak Street.
Motherlodge will host a lot of other events around town this weekend, including a Jesus Christ Superstar singalong, NCAA men’s basketball watching parties and an ongoing fundraiser to help pay for medical expenses for The Rudyard Kipling’s “patriarch,” Ken Pyle.
