Windfall Theatre opens its 21st Season with |
AN EMPTY PLATE IN THE CAFE DU GRAND BOEUF
By Michael Hollinger
On a July night in 1961, the staff of the world's greatest restaurant, the Café du Grand Boeuf in Paris, await the arrival of Victor the Café's owner and sole patron. However, when "Monsieur" returns from the bullfights in Madrid disheveled, depressed and wishing to die of starvation sitting at his table, the frantic staff
try everything to change his mind. Victor consents to having them prepare him one last meal provided they leave it in the kitchen. Instead they describe it to him
over a series of empty platters. Don't miss this comic tragedy; a feast of adjectives and adverbs in seven courses celebrating the joys of cooking, sex, bullfighting and the collected works of Ernest Hemingway.
