PlayMakers offers special Café Society seating for Noel Coward’s ‘Private Lives’

Are you a kindred spirit of the “Bright Young Things” who frequented nightclubs of the 1930s? Do you long for the sophisticated glamour and witty banter of Noel Coward and his black-tie crowd? Then PlayMakers’ Café Society seating is the one-of-a-kind theatre experience you.

Director Sean Daniels says:

“We want to let the audience immerse themselves in Noel Coward’s world of the 1930s supper club scene where fashion, comedy and deliciousness were what an evening was all about. Sitting at a Café Society table makes this possible – you can be in the story and have the experience without having to participate in the play itself.”

For $20 in addition to the price of a Section A show ticket, a Café Society seat includes:

  • Exclusive floor seating at café tables surrounding the stage, right next to the action.
  • Before the show you’ll be served a mocktail presented in period 1930s barware devised for Private Lives by Gary Crunkleton of The Crunkleton. Accompanying the mocktail, which Gary calls The Violet Hour, are a mushroom crostini and gazpacho shooter.
  • At intermission you’ll receive premium coffee and a mini dessert sampler. Coffee and the delectable edibles are from The Weathervane at Southern Season.


Private Lives is onstage Jan 22 – Feb 9.
