By Jacques Lamarre
Adapted from Giulia Melucci's memoir
Directed by Rob Ruggiero
Life is just a bowl of...pasta! A mouth-watering comedy, this deliciously hilarious play celebrates Italian home cooking as both an expression of love and a source of comfort when the romance goes cold. Antoinette LaVecchia plays Giulia Melucci, conjuring up a culinary masterpiece (cooking a three-course meal live on stage before our eyes) as she recounts stories about the men in her life and the meals that she made for them.
