You are cordially invited to the Stahlbaum family’s holiday party! Travel back in time and step into a room alive with music and festive cheer. Rummage through our selection of period costume pieces, grab a cocktail and experience a new interactive version of the classic holiday tale with a hilarious, cocktail-filled twist.
This irreverent 90-minute-long holiday show is part immersive theatre, part cabaret, and part winter dream. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself waltzing with the Sugar Plum Fairy and fencing alongside the Nutcracker, and try to keep a straight face as the actors cast your friends in some of the lead roles - no acting or ballet experience required! This isn’t your traditional trip to the ballet. Instead, a troupe of actors will use everything in the room, including you, to bring the iconic story to life.
This fantastical pop-up event, featuring live improv-actors, three cocktails and lots of laughs is a treat you can’t deny yourself this holiday season.

- All this and more will take place in the gorgeous American Irish Historical Society mansion in Manhattan.
Founded in 1897, the American Irish Historical Society is a cultural institution featuring a library and archive, public arts programming, and events space. Its landmark Beaux Arts mansion located on 991 Fifth Avenue, just across the street from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is a magnificent five-story townhouse that features turn of the century historically preserved interior.
The venue was built in 1900 on the trailing edge of the Gilded Age. The brick and white limestone building, with its wrought iron grille entrance, arched leaded windows and two balconies overlooking Fifth Avenue were considered to be an exemplary model of the Beaux Arts style.
The beautiful exterior was the work of Turner and Killian, while the interior, with its spacious and elegantly appointed rooms, was designed by the well known architect Ogden Codman, Jr.
We invite you to step inside what is truly one of New York City’s hidden gems.
