In a quintessential American restaurant, two people meet, fall in love and begin the messy process of creating a life together. From birth to that inevitable last course and every corn dog, calamari and Cadillac margarita in between, a potluck of characters' lives fly by like short order fare as five generations experience joy, heartache, love and loss. Expect humor and heartache in this award-winning off-Broadway hit by Dan LeFranc (Sixty Miles to Silver Lake), which earned him the 2010 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award. Learn More

My wife liked it better than I did (I would give it three stars, for her four stars). Regardless, the RCS is an always entertaining/spirited group of performers. We had previously seen All The Great Books which was outstanding. Can't go wrong with an evening of entertainment with these jokers!! They cover so much ground it is dizzying and we liked the occasional foray into sports history. Since the review options don't allow for halves, as a couple, we'd give it 3 1/2 stars. Would see them again in their other efforts in a heartbeat.

The Complete World of Sports (abridged)
by Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor
Just in time for Father’s Day comes The Complete World of Sports (abridged). Is bowling really a sport? What about poker or competitive eating? Who invented curling and synchronized swimming and why in the world are they in the Olympics? From the earliest cavemen playing “Neanderthal in the Middle” to your own kid’s soccer practice, the lunacy of sports collides with lunatic wit in a tour-de-farce of physical theatre.
