The Kitchen

Studio 58 presents...

“I can’t dream in a kitchen.” The Kitchen is a classical piece of theatrical innovation born out of the socialist movement of post-WWII. Taking place in the kitchen of a high-end restaurant, the chefs and servers navigate a whole, rigorous day of preparing food for their demanding patrons. A fast-paced and choreographed tour-deforce, this show looks at breaking personal barriers and challenging the status quo.

"The effectively—one of the most memorable moments of the show being the height of the lunch rush, where choreographer Amanda Testini has staged what appears to be an endless army of servers stomping through a chaos-erupted kitchen. There’s a grand-scale-nightmare effect to this scene that’s transfixing."
