Step into the bohemian world of 1890’s Montmartre with legendary artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and the women he immortalized at the exciting and immersive performance of Unmaking Toulouse-Lautrec.
Inspired by the Belle Epoque period in Paris, Unmaking Toulouse-Lautrec follows the exciting and provocative story of one of the best-known post-impressionist painters in history with a uniquely immersive play. Put on by the Bated Breath Theatre Company, the show invites guests to experience what Paris’ sensational Montmartre was like at the turn-of-the-century.
You’ll step straight into this boisterous time in history at Madame X in Greenwich Village. The dimly-lit bar will transport you into the heart of Toulouse-Lautrec’s tumultuous life as his tragic story unfolds all around you by way of dancers, prostitutes, and outcasts that served as the late artist’s inspiration. Unmaking Toulouse-Lautrec explores the ecstasy of creativity against the agony of the body in the most thrilling art history lesson you’ll ever have. Unmaking Toulouse-Lautrec was listed in “The Best Immersive Theater In NYC” on Time Out NY.
The unforgettable experience will include champagne, roses, an open bar, and other sweet surprises that’ll make your romantically saucy evening extra-special.
Tickets to the hour-long show, which are only $42, include one complimentary drink and can be purchased here.
