American Classics: A Novel Idea
Posted on: January 19, 2017

We at the Hampshire House are pleased to present American Classics: A Novel Idea. Join us for a night filled with song, food and fun as we take you on a musical journey through great American novels. Sit down to a three-course dinner while you listen to songs from novels turned Broadway and Hollywood musicals. Settle in for a night of sophistication and feel the thrill of wining and dining in a turn-of-the-century Bostonian mansion on Beacon Hill.


We will be featuring music from Show Boat, The King and I, Pal Joey, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Gypsy, Roberta, and more. All of which are Broadway and Hollywood musicals based on classic American novels. The songs will be expertly performed by a talented team of singers including Jean Danton, Michelle Deluise, Davron Monroe, and Benjamin Sears. Accompanying them on the piano will be Bradford Conner.

The delectable three-course dinner will be prepared by Chef Markus Ripperger. For starters, choose from white bean and Tuscan kale soup, Maine lobster bisque, Boston Bibb lettuce salad, or organic baby spinach salad. Entrée choices include slow roasted pork loin, rosemary tenderloin of beef, herb crusted Atlantic salmon, or Moroccan roasted chicken. To end your meal is the grand finale – the Hampshire House Chocolate Trilogy. This includes Belgian chocolate crème brûlée, double chocolate bread pudding, and Chef Markus Ripperger’s nationally acclaimed maple roasted almond and Swiss chocolate soup.
