Some meals sound so sumptuous when described— but would you really opt to listen instead of eat? For Victor, owner of a four-star French Café du Grand Boeuf, a “feast of adjectives and adverbs” is on the menu. In this dark comedy, Victor shows that some niche appetites are more easily starved, not fed, to be satisfied. An Empty Plate in the Café du Grand Boeuf presents a unique order: Victor wants to die of starvation at his own table. After protest, the staff and Victor achieve a curious compromise— he will enjoy one last meal, but only if it consists of a “feast of adjectives and adverbs.” Bon appetit. $18/general, $16/seniors. 8pm Friday-Saturday, November 4-5. 8pm, Thursday-Saturday, November 10-12. 2pm, Sunday November 13.
