Celebrate Valentine's Day with All About Love at the Paradise Factory Theater

Inspired by the music of Stevie Wonder, ALL ABOUT LOVE offers a “fresh look at love” in an energetic, interactive, modern multi-media experience that combines live theater, film, music, dance and more into a single narrative piece about love in all of its fabulously unpredictable forms.

On Valentine’s Day, there will be a special performance at 6:00pm that will include a complimentary glass of wine for each audience member. A 6:00pm curtain time gives the audience a chance to “go out” for the romantic holiday without being out in a crowded restaurant. With tickets priced at $18, anyone can afford to treat their beloved or themselves. What a great way to celebrate a day dedicated to love, whether or not you have a Valentine!

ALL ABOUT LOVE consists of three unique storylines seamlessly woven together through a unique and contemporary use of multi-media.
