‘Sweet Land, the Musical’ at the History Theatre
With Afterthoughts Q & A hosted by the GAI on May 7, following the 2pm Matinee
Discounted Tickets for GAI Members
Based on the film and classic short story, Sweet Land, the Musical will open at the History Theatre on April 29 and run through the end of May. Called “A poignant, lyrical celebration of land, love, and the American immigrant experience,” the story centers on Inge Altenberg who journeys to America in 1920 to marry a bachelor farmer, sight unseen. However, in the wake of WWI, Inge’s German heritage turns her new neighbors against the match. The determined young immigrant and her stoic farmer must fight for their lives, facing their own misgivings and the harshness of an unforgiving land.
The GAI will be hosting a Q & A session post-show for the May 7 matinee, speaking on the history of German immigrants in Minnesota. As part of our partnership, GAI Members can receive $30 tickets ($15 for students) to the May 7 performance of Sweet Land when you use the special promo code GAI717.
