Taking the phrase wine and dine to the next level
There are many combinations in the world that make sense. Wine and cheese, salt and pepper, but who knew that Broadway and wine would be one of those combos that just makes sense. Tony nominee Jacob Langfelder (Sea Wall/A Life) launched a show titled Broadway and Vine, which combines the best of Broadway shows with the best wine Napa has to offer. Joining the show is Tony nominee Tony Yazbeck (On The Town, Gypsy, A Chorus Line, and star of the upcoming Broadway production of Flying Over Sunset) and Emmy Award winning composer and lyricist, Lance Horne. The show will take place within Napa Valley, at Tre Posti.
The evening features a three course vintner’s dinner by Chef Nash Cognetti and has wines hosted by Arietta’s Fritz and Caren Hatton, Rich and Leslie Frank of Frank Family Vineyards with winemaker Todd Graff, and the Peju Family pouring Calmére and Peju with winemaker Sara Fowler.
This outdoor series features a rotating cast with some of the best performers around. To start, the show on September 21 features Billboard #1 Recording Artist Shoshana Bean (Waitress, Wicked, Hairspray, Beaches). This is followed by Taylor Iman Jones (Hamilton, Head Over Heels, Groundhog Day, and co-star of the upcoming Broadway production of The Devil Wears Prada) for October 18. And lastly, Tony Award winner Beth Leavel (The Prom, The Drowsy Chaperone and co-star of the upcoming Broadway production of The Devil Wears Prada) will perform on the October 19th show. The series will also include Tamika Lawrence (Caroline or Change, Come From Away, Beautiful, If/Then, Matilda), Catherine Walker (Mary Poppins, Ragtime, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder), Omari Tau (Lion King), plus many more. In addition to bringing Broadway to Napa’s backyard, the all-star concert series provides performance, workshop and masterclass opportunities for local youth. The monthly series is sponsored in part by Carneros Resort and Spa, Haute Living, and Golden Gate Sotheby’s International Realty.
