About Cafe Play
"Café Play" transforms The Cornelia Street Café into an immersive and interactive wonderland. Offering a unique glimpse into the lives of New Yorkers – from the waitress to the cockroach to the teacup on the table – "Café Play" runs the gamut from the hilarious to the profound and transformative. Audiences enjoy a three-course dinner during the show (included in the ticket price) to fully immerse themselves in the world of the café.
"Café Play" is conceived and directed by Erin B. Mee, written by Jenny Lyn Bader, Jessie Bear, Erin B. Mee, and Colin Waitt, and includes choreography by Jonathan Matthews. Among characters in "Café Play" is a teacup voiced by the award-winning actress Kathleen Chalfant.
This Is Not A Theatre Company creates site-based, immersive, multi-sensory participatory dance-theatre that can be eaten, touched, and smelled as well as seen and heard.
