James Beard Play I LOVE TO EAT Continues Theatrical Outfit's Season Of Beauty
Theatrical Outfit, located at The Balzer Theater at Herren's on Luckie Street in downtown Atlanta, continues its 2018-2019 Season of Beauty with the Atlanta premiere of I Love to Eat, Pulitzer Prize finalist James Still's revealing and irreverent peek into the life of celebrity chef James Beard. Set in the charismatic cook's Manhattan kitchen in the middle of a sleepless night, the play flashes back to Beard's appearances on the first live TV cooking program ever in 1946 and includes appetizers for seat holders who sit close. Hilarious and heartfelt, I Love to Eat, directed by Clifton Guterman, Theatrical Outfit's Associate Artistic Director, stars Atlanta stage veteran William S. Murphey as the foodie icon and runs April 10 - May 5, 2019.
1984. Manhattan. "In the beginning there was Beard," said Julia Child of the first TV chef whose charisma transformed him from aspiring actor to culinary expert. A flamboyant yet introverted gastronomist, James Beard was his own greatest promoter and harshest critic. He weathered shifts in foodie culture for half a century, and the award bearing his name today is craved by chefs worldwide. Drop into Beard's Greenwich Village kitchen for bean-spilling anecdotes, on-air flashbacks, and a salty voyage around the world of love, life, and comfort food. Sit close and sample a taste!
