  • Learn about the 1970’s series of experimental erotic theatre, including the racy “Score” with a young Sylvester Stallone

About the event:

The tour will encompass each decade of the Martinique’s history with occasional love stories peppered in. Insiders will enjoy the original cast recording from the Martinique Theatre’s performance of “All In Love” and hear about the 1970’s year-long series of experimental erotic theatre, including the racy “Score” with a young Sylvester Stallone that’s featured in the Martinique’s secret “To Risqué to Display” collection.

The WWI love letters are dated June 1918 and sent from the Martinique to Columbus, OH. The property team was able to aggregate further details after being in contact with the family in 2009. The letters can be viewed on the digital catalog CatalogIt HUB
