AN EMPTY PLATE IN THE CAFÉ DU GRAND BOEUF

Directed by Samantha Wyer

April 28 – May 16, 2010

Rehearsals begin in March

Victor is a man of immense appetites. He is a wealthy and eccentric American expatriate living in 1961 Paris and owns the fabulous Café du Grand Boeuf, the world's finest restaurant, which he reserves solely for his private use. When he unexpectedly arrives in a state of broken-hearted desperation, the staff attempts to lift his spirits by seducing him with culinary splendors, but they find that the way to a man's heart may not be through his stomach. This deliciously wild and zany comedy in seven courses celebrates the joys of cooking, sex, bullfighting, the collected works of Ernest Hemingway and living each moment to its fullest!

"… a treat on the Off-Broadway menu…"
