Coming Up: Café Play, September 16 - October 28, 2018
Don't miss your second chance to see Café Play following its limited run last fall Off-Off Broadway. Café Play transforms The Cornelia Street Café into an immersive and interactive wonderland. Offering a unique glimpse into the lives of New Yorkers – from the waitress to the cockroach to the teacup on the table – Café Play runs the gamut from the hilarious to the profound and transformative. Audiences enjoy a three-course dinner during the show (included in the ticket price) to fully immerse themselves in the world of the café.
Named 'One of the Best Off-Off Broadway Shows in NYC by Time Out New York, Café Play has been called "a genuine exploration of the way we live now that offers plenty of laughs, charming innovation, aching vulnerability, and the bite of incisive social satire" (No Proscenium)
