Musical Comedy Doesn’t Let Its Actors Eat

LONG BEACH, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A new musical comedy called Five Course Love is starving its actors in the name of romance.

It’s the sizzlin’ story of five couples played by just three actors who try to order up true love in five restaurants.

Their dinner dates take place at an Italian restaurant, a Mexican cantina, a German eatery, a 50’s diner, and a rib joint, but the forks never leave the table.

That’s because the catch of the day is that no one can really eat anything during the show.

Playwright Gregg Coffin says, “The idea of food showing up is the red herring. No food shows up in this show.”

But Coffin says having his actors work out their appetites for affection in the play on empty stomachs leaves the show thirstin’ for love.

As he puts it, “Drinks are brought, but they never get their entrees, because the human animal is at its best when it can’t have its own way.”

Five Course Love dishes out it’s opening night June 15.
