Conni’s Avant Garde Restaurant: Home for the Hollandaise (2011)

December 01, 2011 - December 18, 2011

7:00pm, Gordon Square Theatre

Come dine with Conni and the Avantgardists! "Conni's Avant Garde Restaurant" (a Time Out New York favorite and Village Voice Choice), is not a locale but a group of bold (if fictional) theatrical performers, devoted to the work of Conni Convergence, the beloved (and again, fictional) icon of stage and screen. Hailed as "dinner theatre of the absurd" by the New York Times, this unique theatrical-culinary event mixes the ingredients of fine food, wine, and ensemble theatre together in a loving send-up of avant-garde pomposity.

Tickets: $60

Conni’s Avant Garde Restaurant returns this holiday season to bring you their latest, most important pioneering work. Muffin Character Hanshake, the company’s aging diva, shares her struggles with the career-upending decision to have a child- “Motherhood: That’s a show that never closes!” Her miraculous journey begins with a visit from the Soup Angel, and she is encouraged along her way by the Ensemble. The evening will feature a radical and dark re-interpretation of the Nutcracker Suite by ex-pageant queen, Miss Goodi Two Shoes, a rare Q&A with would-be rock ‘n’ roll hall-of-famer Mrs. Robinson, and instructions on the art of bussing tables from general manager Sue James. Throughout the evening, you will treated to a homemade, five-course meal devised by Cleveland’s own ChefChef BonBon, and holiday cheer dispensed by Doctor Smith and our barkeep Hunter.

This hilarious musical performance includes crazy cabaret, improv comedy, death, violence, and a five course meal.

“…tastiest and most depraved group dining experience since Caligula stopped serving piping hot virgins to his dinner guests. …you have never experienced anything like it. You will laugh, except when your jaw is hanging agape in amazement. And you will not leave hungry”
Christine Howey on Rave and Pan

“It’s one hell of a good time!”
