An Empty Plate in the Café du Grand Boeuf 

When: Jan. 25-Feb. 17 2013

What: During a warm July night in 1961, the Café du Grand Boeuf in Paris, headwaiter Claude along with waitress Mimi and chef Gaston nervously await the arrival of the Café's owner and sole patron, Victor — played by Patrick Ryan Sullivan. Upon Victor's arrival, the staff notices his disheveled appearance, and he quickly shares with them his one wish — to die of starvation at his own table. In an effort to keep their livelihood, the staff they will describe one final meal over several courses personified by multiple empty platters. When Victor consents, the descriptive feast begins. —Kelsey Sunderland
