Small and cozy theater, main lead was great as well as the rest of the cast. Good value for the price!

I went with my Mother, It was defenitly entertaining. I even saw a guy wanting to cry at a very sensitive part of the last scene. Lol I think the main girl is very strong... continued

Deli cats was not good. We almost walked out at intermission but decided to stay. Very amateurish. It's not that the acting was so bad, although it was, it was the actual dialogue and playwriting that was really bad

Description

Meet Joanie: A waitress with wanderlust who has only managed one journey in her twenty-nine years. Sadly … it landed her in a dirty little diner with a tray in one hand – and her other hand busy with a flamboyantly and antagonistic bus boy. Or wait … does Joanie’s relentlessly biting commentary make her the antagonist?  

Emily, an odd customer with some interesting habits, drops in to the scene and refuses to leave. A collusion of errors ensues which coaxes even more nasty out of Joanie … but can this unlikely pairing help the two on their struggle to find what they both need in order to move forward with their lives?  

Meanwhile, two other gals in the deli build their own campfire of complaints, each struggling through significant problems of their own … and growing more resentful of their company as the entire room shamelessly eavesdrops until their opinions can no longer be contained – and are often blurted out across the tables. All of this is moderated by a charming sage-like bus boy, our waitress’ somewhat lovingly abused friend who delivers tremendous impact with his street-wise wisdom and comedic timing.  

Combining touching moments with a unique perspective and snappy dialog, Deli Cats endeavors to entertain the audience with the type of candid discourse that can only come from women speaking to each other in the absence of men.
