An Empty Plate at the Cafe du Grand Boeuf

Date/Time

Nov 23, 2018 to Dec 15, 2018

This event occurs weekly, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Description

A Comedy by Michael Hollinger

No menu necessary at the world's greatest restaurant, the Café du Grand Boeuf in Paris. Why? "Because we have everything," headwaiter Claude admonishes waiter-in-training Antoine. On this night in 1961, the staff awaits the imminent arrival of Victor, the Café's owner and sole patron. But when "Monsieur" returns disheveled and morose, his wish is simple: to die of starvation at his own table. The frantic staff tries to change his mind, but to no avail. Finally, they make a last-ditch plea: Out of respect for their life's work, will he let them prepare one final meal—provided they leave it in the kitchen? Instead they will describe it, course by course, over a series of empty platters, and the "feast of adjectives and adverbs" begins.

Dates and times over 4 weekends are: 8 pm Nov 23-24; 8 pm Nov 30-Dec 1; 7:30 pm Dec 6, 8 pm Dec 7-8, 2 pm Dec 9; 7:30 pm Dec 13, 8 pm Dec 14-15.
