Dinner Theater at CPT!

When: Thu., Dec. 2 2010

Described as "a loving send-up of avant-garde pomposity" and "dinner theater of the absurd," Conni's Avant Garde Restaurant is like a trippy Tony n' Tina's Wedding meets the local-food movement. A cast of crazy characters cavorts through a loose plot line about one member of an oddball theatrical ensemble getting pregnant. Meanwhile, and in full view of the audience, the cast is preparing and serving a meal made with local, seasonal ingredients — and performing musical numbers while doing it. Tickets are $50 and include a menu worthy of the area's hottest bistros: roast chestnut and mushroom tartine, herbed apple and fennel salad, curried butternut squash soup, maple-glazed ham with cranberry compote, and more. The play opens this evening at 7 p.m. and runs through December 19 at Cleveland Public Theatre's Gordon Square Theatre, 6415 Detroit Ave. Call 216-631-2727 or go to — Anastasia Pantsios
