What is the Parlor?

The Parlor is an immersive, theatrical event experience created by Laura Reitsma, owner and event producer of Fierce Productions. The Parlor is inspired by Laura's love of Shakespeare, classical music, and beautiful things. The first time Laura walked into the Colvin House, the historic mansion where the Parlor is hosted, she fell in love and knew it needed to be showcased! 

The Parlor is a hybrid of a variety show and cocktail party inspired by the Salons de Paris of the 1800s. Bimonthly, the first Friday of the month, at The Colvin House Mansion, guests will be amazed by opera singers, dancers, Shakespearean actors, drag queens, musicians and more.  Dress up and spend your Friday evening in a  Mansion surrounded by live performances and wonderful conversation! Join us at Colvin House on every other first Friday of the month and prepare to be entertained by Chicago's most esteemed actors and musicians with a glass of wine in one hand and a fan in the other!
