In the Gregg Coffin musical “Five Course Love” three actors play 15 different characters in five different restaurants on the hunt for one true love.

The evening begins at Dean’s Old-Fashioned All-American Down-Home Bar-B-Que Texas Eats, where a blind date goes charbroiled wrong. Next, at the Trattoria Pericolo, a mob wife has a secret rendezvous behind her husband’s back. At Der Schlupfwinkel Speiseplatz, a waiter, a dominatrix and her kept man discover at the same hilarious moment that they are all dating each other. In Ernesto’s Cantina a hill bandit and his rival battle for the hand of the beautiful Rosalinda. And at the Star-Lite Diner a waitress pines for her true love and gets a little help from Cupid in making her dreams come true.
