Princeton University Art Museum

Hot Pursuit: A pARTy Crawl

WHEN: Saturday, April 5, 5 PM, Museum galleries; 7 PM, McCarter Theatre

What was it about eighteenth-century France that was so singular--before so many aristocrats lost their heads? Find out, and satisfy your own thirst for art and theater, food and wine during this special collaboration between the Art Museum and McCarter Theatre Center. Start your evening at the Museum with performances by L'Avant-Scène (the French theater workshop), special tours, giveaways, and food with a decidedly European bent. And then join us for a crawl to McCarter Theatre to catch the evening's performance of Beaumarchais's The Barber of Seville in a new production by Stephen Wadsworth that's certain to be the talk of the town
