You're invited!

Manhattan socialite Millicent Jordan plans the perfect dinner party, but as her guests arrive, business intrigues and romantic entanglements are brought to light in this 1930s-era comedy. Dinner at Eight is a winning new work that charmingly weds American musical theater and opera.

Preliminary run time of 2 hours and 6 minutes, including one intermission.

Sung in English with English captions projected above the stage.
