"It's glorious [...] a transformative night at the theatre" - The Globe and Mail
What is love?
Pop-Up Love Party reimagines Plato's Symposium in its quest to define love with all its plagues and pleasures by employing aerobics, holding a kangaroo court, exposing audience passion, and pumping out an infectious pop ballad that will mend broken hearts around the world.
Enriching this roller coaster ride through the depths of desire is a 7-course snack menu created by Dartmouth-born, New York-famed, Michelin-starred chef, Daniel Burns. Chef Burns co-owns Luksus, which was recently named one of New York's best new restaurants and one of America's 50 best new restaurants by Bon Appétit. Burns created the menu specifically for Pop-Up Love Party with flavours and textures to heighten moments of the production.
Select a date above to savour the heightened moments with Burns' 7-course snack menu.
VEGETARIAN OPTION AVAILABLE. You'll be prompted in this process to select the vegetarian option.
To be certain, this ain't no dinner theatre. It's a philosophical feast, a sensory slip n' slide, and a theatrical experience so unique it could only come from deep in the pulsing Zuppa heart.
