I LOVED, I LOST, I MADE SPAGHETTI March 26-April 26--Adapted by Jacques LaMarre from the memoir by Gulia Melucci. Life is just a bowl of pasta! Giulia is a single New Yorker who really knows how to deliver in the one room where it counts — the kitchen. Publishing pro by day and domestic diva by night, she knows how to whip up mouth-watering Italian cuisine. Unfortunately, her prowess with pasta is not matched by her taste in men, who all seem to eat and run. Conjuring up a culinary masterpiece (cooking a three-course meal live on stage before our eyes) Gulia recounts stories about the men in her life and the meals that she made for them. Can she find Mr. Right or will she end up getting burned? A mouth-watering comedy, this deliciously hilarious play celebrates Italian home cooking as both an expression of love and a source of comfort when the romance goes cold. Check the website for ticket information.
