The Shea and Piti Theatre Present: Sammy and the Grand Buffet
Sammy and the Grand Buffet engaged children and had them up on their feet dancing and participating. A great take for young kids and families alike. - Danielle Olsen, Producer, Summer in the City, Cambridge

"Mirin is a performer with energy to burn." -  nytheatre.com

Two time Independent Reviewer of New England Award nominated solo performer Jonathan Mirin of Piti Theatre Co. brings his new clown solo to the Shea! An American Clown in Paris, Sammy has to prepare his boss's restaurant for the evenings Grand Buffet. He does his best to follow the list of instructions but . . . its not easy being Sammy. Forty magic, music and happy accident-filled minutes later, the Grand Buffet will be served by our hero to an unusually adventurous group of children travelling abroad.

Amazingly helpful . . . I feel reinvigorated about writing and also how my unique writing fits into the spectrum of comedy. Thank you.

It was great to find how physicality could feed the creative mind for writing. The specifics with my own characters were incredibly helpful.
