HISTORY THEATRE AT HOME PRESENTS
SWEET LAND, THE MUSICAL
SAINT PAUL, MN
OCTOBER 9 - 22, 2020
Join History Theatre from the comforts of your home to stream this "beautiful story of love, community, and connection to the land." (Cherry and Spoon). Inge Altenberg journeys to America to marry a bachelor farmer, sight unseen. But in the wake of WWI, Inge's German heritage turns her neighbors against the match. Don't miss what Talkin' Broadway called "a thoroughly human story of enduring love...one of the finest original works to appear on any Twin Cities stage over the past several seasons."
A Three-camera archival recording of the 2017 premiere of Sweet Land, the Musical will be made available online from October 9-22, 2020.
Please consider buying a ticket for everyone viewing. We hope to cover our costs, pay our artists during this crisis and stay connected to you!

“[Dina] Maccabee's lovely folk-flavored music captures the essence of rural life in 1920 Minnesota, with rising swells that convey the deep emotion at the heart of the story."
