Join Audra McDonald and Will Swenson for a Valentine’s Chocolate Tasting

The virtual, interactive event is presented by Playbill and Läderach.

This Valentine’s season, Broadway couple Audra McDonald and Will Swenson are teaming up with Playbill and Läderach – chocolatier suisse for a virtual, interactive tasting experience. A Sweet Taste of Broadway will take place February 13 at 3 PM ET as part of Playbill’s Social Selects programming.

McDonald and Swenson will be joined by World Chocolate Master Elias Läderach as he leads viewers on a tasting of Läderach’s fresh handcrafted chocolate from Switzerland and a discussion of the greatest love stories in theatre.

“My amazing wife is maybe the busiest person I know,” says Swenson. “And the only thing better than actually pinning her down for a fun, creative date, is if that fun, creative date involves chocolate. Tons of amazing chocolate. And that is precisely why I’m over the moon for this upcoming event. Time with amazing wife. Time with amazing chocolate. Everybody wins.”

There are three ticket options: 1) “The Sweetest Kiss” VIP package includes entry to the event, a Läderach fresh chocolate tasting kit, plus virtual backstage access after the main show; 2) “A Peck on the Cheek” regular package includes entry to the event and a Läderach fresh chocolate tasting kit; and 3) “Love From Afar” viewing-only package includes entry to the event. To ensure timely delivery, online orders for “The Sweetest Kiss” and “A Peck on the Cheek” close on February 4.
