Five Course Love tells the story of five entangled encounters with love in five different restaurants. Three actors play fifteen different characters, all on the hunt for one true Love. The evening begins at Dean’s Old-Fashioned All-American Down Home Bar-B-Que Texas Eats, where a blind date goes char-broiled wrong. Next, at the Trattoria Pericolo, a mob wife has a secret rendezvous behind her husband’s back. At Der Schlupfwinkel Speiseplatz, a waiter, a sexy German siren, and her kept man discover at the same hilarious moment that they are all dating each other. In Ernesto’s Cantina, a hill bandit and his rival battle for the hand of the beautiful Rosalinda. And at the Star-Lite Diner, a waitress pines for her true love and gets a little help from Cupid in making her dreams come true.

The musical styles reflect the cuisine of the eateries:  Country & Western, Italian, German cabaret, Mexican and 50’s Doo Wop. Five Course Love played at the Minetta Lane Theatre in 2005.  The cast album features the original off-Broadway cast.  Heather Ayers as Barbie, Sofia, Gretchen, Rosalinda and Kitty; John Bolton as Matt, Gino, Klaus, Guillermo and Clutch; and Jeff Gurner as Dean, Carlo, Heimlich, Ernesto and Pops.

FIVE COURSE LOVE is artfully sill and genuinely funny…hilarious and imaginative.”  - Associated Press

“Like most of the new off-Broadway musicals this fall, FIVE COURSE LOVE goes heavy on pastiche.  Here it’s well done, with scenes and song styles amusingly matched.  Pleasantly fluffy…five looks at love in five different restaurants…Gregg Coffin, who wrote the music, lyrics and book, seems to have a nice ear for catchy zippy tunes…Lots of laughs!”  - The New York Times

FIVE COURSE LOVE is a cute, diverting, fast-paced little show…alternately silly and sweet, raunchy and romantic…sweetly sincere…” - Broadway.com

“Genuinely heartwarming…an undercurrent of unrequited love pierces the often blistering, breakneck comedy and creates moments of surprising seriousness and sentimentality…distinctive, tuneful and highly memorable…” - Talkin’ Broadway
