'Waiting Around,' A Review

Facing the Stage

Exit Le Chat


by Jim Fitzmorris

In honor of occasion, I will withhold my traditional quibbles and simply relay what a good time I had. This Sunday afternoon, six actors in elegant, individualized black outfits took the stage in front of music stands. Using a series of isolated lighting specials and framed by chalkboard menus, Native Tongues: The Food Edition presented its closing performance at Le Chat Noir. Structured as a tasting menu, the series of monologues, poems, and vignettes was the perfect palette cleansing for my weekend and exactly the sort of quality production audiences have come to expect from All Kinds of Theatre.
