‘Five Course Love’ dishes out the laughs
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.
