About the show

Part of the Midtown International Theatre Festival, 'The Dinner' is a new musical that chronicles the political fallout following Booker T. Washington and President Roosevelt's shared dinner at the White House. More…

'The Dinner' begins with the aftermath of an innocent act by two great leaders -- who chose to eat at the same dinner table at the same time.

'The Dinner' also features narrative, original music, dance, and the words of Booker T. Washington and Theodore Roosevelt.
