The New York Idea

Picnic Theatre Company

June 26, 2014, Reception 5:30 pm, Performance 6:30 pm

Washington professionals by day, the all-volunteer Picnic Theatre Company brings their brand of site-specific cocktail party theater to the Phillips’s historic Music Room for a performance of The New York Idea, a turn-of-the-century American social comedy of manners. The Washington Post has called the troupe one of the “culture party hybrids taking Washington by storm” with one-act performances of classics.
