How brilliant is this! The Great Canadian Theatre Company, in collaboration with Sheila Whyte of Thyme & Again and Michael Moffatt, executive chef of Beckta, play and gezellig, has been playing matchmaker with the six mainstage productions of its 2016-2017 season. For one night, and one night only, each show gets a chef. And not just any ol’ chef. Just look at that lineup! Not just any ol’ meal either. Each chef has been tasked with creating a prix fixe menu inspired by the play s/he’s popping into. As you might imagine, tickets are limited. Contact the GCTC for details. And get booking!

Oct. 4 – Patrick Garland from ABSINTHE CAFE with The Gravitational Pull of Bernice Trimble by Beth Graham
